2019 KBB Best Buy Award Winners

November 15, 2018

The 2019 Volvo XC40 was recently named the overall winner of Kelley Blue Book's (KBB) 2019 Best Buy Awards.

The Best Buy Awards were designed to help car shoppers find the best values in whatever vehicle category they are interested in. Each year the KBB editorial team nominates vehicles in 12 different categories they believe have the potential for highest value. The nominees are then narrowed down through a seven-week test period and the winners are selected based on comparative market pricing, consumer reviews, expert evaluations, and cost-to-own information.

The 2019 Volvo XC40 was named the Overall Best Buy for 2019, as well as the Subcompact Luxury SUV winner. Other winners include the 2019 Honda Civic, Audi Q5, and Ford F150. A full list of all the 2019 winners is below.

If you're considering adding any of these 2018 Best Buys to your garage, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the biggest discounts offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
