Subaru grew UK sales in 2014 by almost a quarter compared to 2013.
In the total, it registered 2793 cars in 2014 compared to 2271 in the previous year.
The Japanese car maker said the new Impreza and price cuts to other models contributed to its growth in sales, adding its crossovers and 4x4s are more popular than in previous years, with the company selling 1210 Foresters in 2014 - an increase of 33% compared to 2013.
Subaru said it is expecting this figure to increase in 2015 with the addition of the Forester Lineartronic diesel to the range in April.
Subaru also confirmed two new models for this year: a facelifted Outback in the March and the new Levorg estate in the autumn.
"These results are encouraging for Subaru UK - it's great to see model launches and recent price cuts helping us back to sustainable growth," said Paul Tunnicliffe, managing director, Subaru UK.
