2024 Subaru Crosstrek side view

  1. 2024 Subaru Crosstrek (99)
  2. 2024-2025 Subaru Forester (82)
  3. 2024 Subaru WRX (78)
  4. 2024 Subaru BRZ (76)

  7. 2024 Ascension of Subaru (49)
  8. 2023 Subaru Soltera (47)
  9. 2024 Subaru Legacy (47)

The redesigned 2024 Subaru Crosstrek subcompact SUV has almost a perfect score of 100 compared to other new vehicles. The Forester Compact SUV is another top model, with a score in the 80s. A surprise example is the WRX performance sports car that earns a high score and is now a Consumer Reports recommended model.

Why are these two different subjects so different?

iSeeCars research ranks Subaru models against other vehicles in their category. iSeeCars analyzed more than 12 million vehicles to determine how reliable each Subaru model is and how it stacks up against its competition.

Meanwhile, Consumer Reports ranks Subaru models for 2024 by asking Subaru owners about their car problems in the past 12 months. This year, they collected data on more than 330,000 vehicles from the 2000 to 2023 model years, with a few early 2024 model years.


I cover Subaru model reliability every year, and Subaru ranks high in reliability compared to other automakers.
