The Subaru Forester has been announced as the New Zealand Car of the Year.

Subaru of NZ said ‘It is a glittering accolade for this family SUV and well-earned recognition for the stalwart of the Subaru stable, which is now in its fifth generation of delivering capable, safe, All-Wheel Drive motoring for Kiwi drivers.’

Criteria for the award includes how well a vehicle performs its intended role, its styling, interior accommodation and quality, its ride and refinement, vehicle dynamics, value for money, active and passive safety and environmental responsibility.

Subaru of New Zealand Managing Director Wallis Dumper said, “We are honoured but not surprised that it has been voted the best 2018 vehicle in the market to buy, as the Forester really is a game-changer for Subaru. We envisage this prestigious award will help further forge the success of our all-new medium-sized SUV and see it achieve similar sales records to our other SUVs.”
