The Subaru Sales Figures

Figures released by VFACTS showed that the Japanese car manufacturers sales are up by 27.1% better than those in July 2016 with 4,265 units sold. This sales amount puts Subaru in 8th position for this sales month. They finished a single unit behind Kia and ahead of declining rivals, Volkswagen, Honda, and Nissan. This growth rate was the highest of any of the top twenty car manufacturer, although it should be noted that smaller brands did experience growth on a proportional basis. The annual sales for Subaru are also up by just over 10% in an overall car market that is up by 0.4%. Subaru has experienced the best sales growth of a large volume car seller alongside Kia and Honda.

The Sales Figure Breakdown

The July sales results were led by the release of the new Subaru XV, which racked up 1,138 sales in this, its first full month on sale, an increase of 88.1% over last year. The still relatively new Subaru Impreza also led the charge accounting for 914 sales. This represents an increase of 195.8% for the Impreza sales in July and 122.1% for the year to date.
