Subaru’s Legacy sedan bumped off the venerable Honda Accord as the leader of the midsize car segment. The auto brand of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., known for its all-wheel-drive capability, also saw its Impreza notch a fourth year as the best compact car, while Forester again led the small SUV category after knocking out Honda’s CR-V in 2014.

Subaru’s trio in the influential magazine’s annual list is the most for any single brand since Toyota Motor Corp.’s namesake line dominated with five picks in 2012. There were 10 model categories this year, plus a Best Overall that was won by the Tesla Model S.

Fuji Heavy rose 1 percent to 4,139 yen as of 9:47 a.m. in Tokyo trading, the highest in three weeks, while the benchmark Topix index gained 0.1 percent.

Toyota’s Prius and Highlander won the green car and midsize SUV categories. That automaker’s Lexus luxury line led the magazine’s separate list of top brands, while its namesake line ranked third.
