Hon­da returns to the top rank­ing among Main­stream brands after a four-year hia­tus while Acu­ra ranks high­est for the first time over Infini­ti, the pre­vi­ous recip­i­ent of the Pre­mi­um Brand award for the past four years. Also note­wor­thy are the Toy­ota fam­i­ly of brands, which walked away with the five seg­ment awards and Sub­aru, a peren­ni­al strong per­former, which net­ted three seg­ment awards.

ALG’s Resid­ual Val­ue Awards hon­our the vehi­cles that are fore­cast to retain the high­est per­cent­age of MSRP after a three-year peri­od for lux­u­ry brands and a four-year peri­od for main­stream brands. Award recip­i­ents are cho­sen after a care­ful eval­u­a­tion of vehi­cle cri­te­ria, includ­ing seg­ment com­pe­ti­tion, his­tor­i­cal vehi­cle per­for­mance and indus­try trends. This year’s awards are based on 2013 mod­el year vehi­cles. Awards are giv­en in 22 vehi­cle seg­ment cat­e­gories and two brand cat­e­gories (Main­stream and Pre­mi­um).

Among the seg­ment awards, the Cadil­lac ATS, Infini­ti JX and Sub­aru BRZ are all-new mod­els, each of which took top spots in their respec­tive seg­ments. The ATS marks the first Cana­di­an Resid­ual Val­ue Award for Cadil­lac and only the sec­ond by a domes­tic automak­er. In two hot­ly con­test­ed seg­ments, the redesigned Hon­da Accord received the award in the Mid­size Car seg­ment, while the Sub­aru Impreza received the award in the Com­pact Car seg­ment. Among Alter­na­tive Fuel vehi­cles, the Volk­swa­gen Golf TDI and Audi A3 TDI were repeat win­ners in the Main­stream and Pre­mi­um cat­e­gories respec­tive­ly.
