5. Subaru Offers a Variety of Vehicles

If you're a pet owner, you know there are more things to consider when looking for a new vehicle. Does it offer enough space so your dog can travel with you and how easy is the access into the vehicle for your dog? Subaru has considered all of these questions and more and made sure the latest Subaru lineup can accommodate every member of your family. If you have a large dog, or more than one, the Subaru Ascent is a three-row SUV with a wide cargo area, room enough for your pets and shopping bags, luggage, or camping equipment. If you have a smaller dog, any of the crossover SUVs like the Outback or Crosstrek are ideal. Even our Impreza hatchback offers a spacious cargo area for your furry friend. No matter what you need out of your Subaru, there is a model for you!

4. Top Safety Ratings Across all Vehicles

If there's one thing you can count on when it comes to Subaru is their legacy of award-winning safety standards. For example, the Crosstrek has been named a Top Safety Pick six years in a row by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, two of those years being a Top Safety Pick+, the highest honor given by the IIHS. The Subaru Impreza was awarded a perfect five star rating across all safety tests for the last six years by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a feat that's practically unparalleled. Subaru includes top-of-the-line driver assistance technology, such as Subaru EyeSight ® driver-assist technology. Subaru designs each of its vehicles with not just your safety in mind, but those of every passenger, including pets. When you purchase a Subaru, you can drive with peace of mind that you are driving one of the safest vehicles on the road.
