It was also a record month for all four regions with Subaru Canada's western region experiencing its best month ever with May sales up 7.9 per cent, beating the previous record set in December of 2010.

With 974 cars sold, new Impreza achieved record-breaking May results, up a massive 84.1 per cent. These strong sales also helped Impreza achieve a YTD record with 4303 sold, an increase of 56.2 per cent over 2011.
