Subaru keeps loyal to hatchbacks & sedans after Ford’s withdrawal

Updated Oct 05, 2020 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

The Subaru Legacy & Subaru Impreza have been confirmed to make it to the brand's upcoming plans.

As Ford’s lately announced their withdrawal from developing hatchbacks and sedans to focus their production on SUVs, trucks, and crossovers in the US market, a sheer sadness overwhelms traditional car enthusiasts. Conversely, Subaru soothes station wagon, hatchback, and sedan fans by saying traditional cars are still indispensable and markedly they are relevant to the auto brand.

However, it is the Crosstrek aka the XV that is bringing the biggest sales figure for Subaru. Actually, their D-segment Legacy is experiencing insignificant sales figures while the Subaru Impreza body styles witnessed sales decreases. So the pertinent question is why the auto brand still insists on station wagons, hatchbacks, and sedans?
