Subaru is off the charts. The reports are in and the automaker has reached new heights with the best May sales the company has ever seen.
Continuing its 30-month streak of year-over-year growth, Subaru’s monthly sales increased by 11 percent over May of 2013. More than 44,000 vehicles were sold throughout the month, pushing year-to-date sales to 19 percent higher than sales reported during the same period last year.
The popular Forester and Outback models fueled this growth. The Forester sold 14,146 units, while 11,641 Outback vehicles were shipped to new homes. Not only that, but the currently Forester boasts a nearly 51-percent increase in year-to-date sales over last year.
“We are having another great year,” said H. William Cyphers, Subaru’s senior vice president of sales. “Every model line is in demand and our challenge is to keep supply levels high enough to keep the customers coming in our showrooms satisfied.”
With the introduction of the all-new Legacy and Outback models, we at Hassett Auto expect sales will continue to soar throughout the summer and the rest of the year. Now is a great time to join the Subaru family!
Have you noticed more Subaru’s driving around lately? If you have, it’s probably because Subaru’s are selling like hotcakes lately! In fact, Subaru just recorded its best sales month ever last month. Well done, Subaru!
We think the reason why so many people are making the switch to Subaru in recent months is because people are starting to realize that Subaru’s aren’t just a fad. They are built to last, they’re loaded with safety features, every single Subaru model is a Top Safety Pick, they’re eco-friendly, and they look awesome.

In a Jalopnik article entitled, “How America Got Its Crazy Crack-Like Addiction To Buying Subarus” they note that Consumer Reports has also been helping Subaru out a lot lately. According to the article, “This year (Consumer Reports) ranked Subaru at the top of their report cards, heaping praise on the Impreza, Legacy, Outback and BRZ. The redesigned 2014 Forester recently took home the top small SUV rating.”
No doubt these reviews have contributed greatly to Subarus recent success. Consumer Reports takes reviews seriously, and in turn, people take Consumer Reports seriously.
