Subaru sports five star performance in Canstar Blue’s 2012 Motoring Awards

Car Awards 2012 - PerformanceTrue to their racing pedigree, Subaru has lapped the competition and received our award for car performance in our nationwide survey of car customers.

A range which includes the sport star Liberty and rally workhorse Impreza sees Subaru customers as the most satisfied of all with their vehicle’s performance.

While Subaru received the performance award for 2012 and a five star rating for this field, other brands also did well. Hyundai, Mazda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Mitsubishi were awarded four star ratings for the performance of their vehicles; while Ford, Holden, Nissan, Honda and Kia all received three.

Canstar Blue commissioned Colmar Brunton to survey 7,500 Australian consumers over a number of months to measure their satisfaction across a range of products and services. The outcomes reported are the results from customers within the survey group – in this case, 1,722 people – who had bought a brand new car from a dealership in the last 3 years.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included. Results are comparative and it should be noted that brands that received three stars have still achieved a satisfaction measure of at least six out of 10.
