CHERRY HILL, N.J., April 1, 2014

CHERRY HILL, N.J., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its long sales
streak, Subaru of America, Inc. has reported record sales of 44,479  vehicles
for March 2014. This is an increase of 21% over the March 2013 sales of 36,701
and means the company has now set consecutive monthly sales increases for the
past 28 months.

The Forester and XV Crosstrek model lines both significantly contributed to
the company's strong March sales and also its performance so far in 2014,
which saw the company post first quarter sales of over 100,000 for the first
time.

Furthering optimism around the brand, an all-new Legacy sedan model was shown
this February and more new models are expected from the company later this
year.

"We are delighted to have once again delivered record results," said Thomas J.
Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. "2014
looks already set to be our seventh year of consecutive sales growth, with
more new product to come."
