What is the Subaru depreciation rate?

I’m looking to buy a new car that can handle a lot of travel. I love the look and drive of Subaru, but I want to make sure I’m making a good investment. How quickly does a Subaru depreciate?

A Subaru is a guaranteed great investment as far as long trips are concerned, but you’ll also be happy to know that Subaru vehicles tend to hold a relatively
high amount of resale value
! The effects of depreciation will vary from model to model, but the average Subaru depreciation rate is between 30% and 40% within the first three to five years.
Here are the expected first-year and five-year depreciation rates according to Edmunds for some of Subaru’s most popular 2022 models:
  • Subaru Forester: 15% (first year), 39% (five years)
  • Subaru Outback: 14% (first year), 35% (five years)
  • Subaru Impreza: 19% (first year), 38% (five years)
  • Subaru Legacy: 16% (first year), 43% (five years)
  • Subaru Crosstrek: 19% (first year), 37% (five years)
Many vehicles lose more than half their value within the first five years of ownership, so Subaru has a nice leg-up on the competition when it comes to depreciation. Of course, the depreciation of your specific car will depend on factors like mileage, repair and maintenance history, and general wear and tear.
