The 2017 Subaru Forester has just won the prestigious Canadian Car of the Year award handed out annually by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. The announcement was made during an opening ceremony of the Canadian International Auto Show that kicked off earlier this month in Toronto.

The new 2017 Subaru Forester keeps piling up the awards

The 2017 Subaru Forester beat the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Chrysler Pacifica to claim the top honors. The all-new Forester had previously finished first in the compact SUV segment.

Last year, the 2017 Subaru Forester was also awarded a Top Safety Pick+ designation by the IIHS, the highest rating handed out by the institute. Two years ago, the current-generation Subaru Legacy was named the Canadian Car of the Year by AJAC.

The Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year is determined after an intensive week of testing where all new eligible vehicles are compared under the same conditions as the Canadian Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario. AJAC journalists have the opportunity to compare each new model and then assign a rating to a series of criteria including comfort, interior space, quietness, ergonomics, cargo space, and more.

"The 2017 Forester win for Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year has capped an outstanding year," said Shiro Ohta, chairman, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. "In 2016, Subaru achieved unprecedented sales success and this award from AJAC is a wonderful tribute to the Subaru Forester as well as to our recent achievements."
