Subaru and Lexus top ALG 2012 Residual Value Awards

ALG has released its annual Resale Value Awards. For 2012, Subaru took home the home the honor of being the top mainstream brand, while Lexus nabbed the top luxury automaker designation. ALG says that once again, Japanese automakers have performed better than their American and European counterparts when it comes to resale. Of the 21 total ALG awards, 11 went to Japanese manufacturers, though Audi bucked that trend by being the single automaker to take home the most awards. Domestic manufacturers, meanwhile, are scarcely represented in the honors. Only the GMC Acadia and Jeep Wrangler received nods for 2012.

ALG weighs each vehicle based on past performance, industry trends and segment competition. There were some surprises for 2012 - interestingly enough, ALG skipped the Toyota Prius in the hybrid/alternative powertrain segment in favor of the Volkswagen Golf TDI, and the Subaru Legacy took home the nod in the mid-sized category instead of either the Honda Accord or the Toyota Camry. Hit the jump for the full press release.
