New or newest? 2021 vs. 2022

Should I Buy a 2021 or 2022 Subaru in Lafayette, LA?

If you’re ready to make a Subaru your next daily driver, but aren’t sure which model year to choose, trust the team here at Giles Subaru to help you decide. With 2022 Subaru vehicles now being released but with plenty of 2021 models still in our inventory, you get the best of both lineups! But what are your priorities? To decide if a 2021 or a 2022 Subaru SUV is best for you, keep scrolling to learn what points to consider.

2021 Models Are Priced to Move

One of the biggest advantages that 2021 models have over 2022 vehicles is that they’re priced to move. Dealerships, like us, are preparing for the influx of models from the 2022 lineup, and our goal is to make room for that new inventory. That means that we’d like to see our 2021 Subaru models find a new home (and quickly), so especially around the holidays, you’ll see that our incentives on these vehicles are rather attractive. While you can always press the gas and drive home a new 2021 Subaru now, you could see even greater savings if you wait until the end of the year to purchase or lease.

How Long Do You Plan on Owning the Car?

A good point to consider is the length of ownership — do you plan on selling your vehicle within 1-2 years, or will this Subaru be yours for the long haul? Your answer can help you determine if you should buy the 2021 or 2022 model year. Why? It’s because a 2022 Subaru will have a higher trade-in value during the first few years of ownership than a 2021 model, so it’s a better choice short-term financially. But if you’d like to keep your Subaru for many years, it might be better to go with the 2021 model.

When Only the Latest and Greatest Will Do

Listen, we understand. So many of the newest releases have the best in technology, safety and performance. Subaru engineers and designers are constantly innovating your favorite Subaru sedans and SUVs to drive better, safer and with greater convenience features year after year. So sometimes, it’s best to wait for the 2022 model year since it promises the best features. As always, do your research. Compare the 2021 and 2022 model years to determine which features you really want, and if you want more help, our sales representatives know these models inside and out.
