Subaru tops for Consumer Reports

Subaru, a car brand of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., was named top automaker in Consumer Reports magazine’s annual rankings as Honda Motor Co., last year’s leader, fell to fourth.

Subaru received 75 of 100 points based on the scores of its seven US models, Consumer Reports said in results released on Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington. The Tokyo-based company earned its score for building "dependable, all-wheel-drive vehicles with simple interiors," the magazine said.
