Which Subaru models are the most likely to last 250,000 miles and beyond? An updated study from iSeeCars now says three Subaru all-wheel-drive models are among the longest-lasting new cars list.
Subaru is known for making all-wheel-drive vehicles, but how long will they last? An updated study from iSeeCars ranks the cars, trucks, and SUVs most likely to last 250,000 miles and beyond, and three Subaru all-wheel-drive vehicles make the top models that will last the longest.
In last year’s study, no Subaru models were ranked among the best. However, this year, the 2023 Subaru Outback midsize SUV, 2023 Subaru Legacy midsize sedan, and 2023 Impreza compact car make the updated iSeeCars list.
iSeeCars says the average vehicle has only an 11.8 percent chance of lasting 250,000 miles. However, the updated iSeeCars.com study identified the longest-lasting cars, trucks, and SUVs most likely to reach a quarter million miles or more.
iSeeCars.com established its industry-leading Longest-Lasting Cars study in 2013. The tenth-anniversary research analyzed over 260 million cars sold between 2012 and 2022 to determine which cars were most likely to survive high mileage.
The Subaru Outback midsize model is ranked the eighth most likely SUV to go over 250,000 miles. iSeeCars says the Outback has a 22.3 percent chance of lasting 250,000 miles and longer. The overall SUV average is fifteen percent making the Subaru Outback 1.5 times more likely to exceed the 250,000-mile mark.
The Subaru Outback also ranked among the top twenty-five vehicles with the longest life, including cars, SUVs, and trucks. The average of all vehicles is 11.8 percent. In addition, the Outback (22.3%) is ranked twenty-first and 1.9 times more likely than all cars to go 250,000 miles and beyond.

The Subaru Legacy is ranked the fifth longest-lasting car, most likely to go over 250,000 miles and beyond. iSeeCars says the Legacy sedan has a 16.2 percent chance of lasting 250,000 miles and longer. The overall car average is 8.6 percent making the Subaru Legacy 1.9 times more likely to exceed the 250,000-mile mark.
