Kelley Blue Book recently announced the winners of its 2018 Best Resale Value Awards, with Toyota and Porsche taking the top honors as best value brand, and best luxury brand.

Toyota was tops in three vehicle categories, while Porsche had four vehicles on the win list.

Now in its 16th year, the Best Resale Value Awards recognize vehicles for their projected retained value through the initial five-year ownership period.
