Subaru Reports Record September Sales
CHERRY HILL, N.J., Oct. 1, 2013
CHERRY HILL, N.J., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Subaru of America, Inc. today
reported 31,755 vehicle sales for the month of September, representing the
best September sales month in company history. September sales increased 15
percent over September 2012. Year-to-date sales for Subaru total 313,407 – 28
percent higher than the same period in 2012. The company is on track to
achieve its fifth-consecutive year of sales increases.
Sales for the all-new 2014 Forester remain strong at 10,620 units, a 75
percent increase over September 2012 and a year-to-date increase of 49
percent. Legacy sedan and Outback crossover were recently rated as "superior"
in the new Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Front Crash
Prevention (FCP) test program. The FCP program was created as a result of
research by the Highway Loss Data Institute indicating that forward collision
warning and automatic braking systems, such as Subaru's EyeSight system, are
helping drivers avoid frontal crashes.
"Subaru of America is particularly proud of the Legacy and Outback earning the
IIHS highest rating in their FCP test," said Thomas J. Doll, president and
chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. "This is a testament to the
safety and technology advantage provided by the EyeSight driver assist system.
It is no wonder more and more people are shopping the Subaru brand."
