AJAC votes 2010 Subaru Outback Canada's Best New Utility Vehicle
TORONTO - The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada
(AJAC) today named the all-new 2010 Subaru Outback Canada's Best New CUV/SUV
under $35K. The announcement was made following AJAC's annual Canadian Car of
the Year 'test fest' near Niagara, Ontario.
To win the category, Outback beat out the Chevrolet Equinox and Toyota
Venza. The new Outback now goes on to compete for the title of overall
Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. The winner will be announced on press
day at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, in mid-February.
"The new Outback has been breaking sales records across Canada since it
first appeared in dealerships, and was recently named SUV of the Year by
Motor Trend magazine," said Katsuhiro Yokoyama, president and CEO of Subaru
Canada, Inc. "I'd say the award makes the verdict unanimous."
AJAC's rigorous Canadian Car of the Year testing program includes
real-world driving on public roads - exactly where consumers drive - so that
the test data and vote results are highly relevant to potential buyers. The
journalists evaluate every detail, from safety features to cargo capacity, to
select the best new vehicles in various categories.
