Winners are chosen on a basis of performance, value, safety, power, fuel efficiency, exterior design, interior room and cargo space.

"We are very pleased that the 2010 Legacy and Outback were recognized by Kiplinger's Personal Finance," said Tom Doll, executive vice president of Subaru of America, Inc. "As the magazine focuses on advising their readers on smart purchasing decisions and wise financial choices, it means a great deal to us that our vehicles receive these honors."

Kiplinger's praised Subaru for its renowned Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive platform and improvements to both vehicles. "Standard all-wheel drive has always been the Subaru hook, but the new Legacy proves Subaru cars can be sexy, too." According to Kiplinger, a stylish redesign, increased cabin room and high resale values earned the Subaru Legacy the "Best New Car" award for the $25,000 - $30,000 category. The 2010 Subaru Outback was lauded for its "sophisticated interior and exterior makeover giving the new Outback a roomier cabin, more cargo space and better handling."
