2018 KBB Best Buy Award Winners

November 23, 2017

The 2018 Honda Accord was recently named the overall winner of Kelley Blue Book's (KBB) 2018 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 49 vehicles in 12 different categories they believe has the potential to have the 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 2018 Honda Accord was named the Overall Best Buy for 2018, as well as the Midsize Car winner. Other winners include the 2018 Chevrolet Impala, 2018 Honda Pilot, 2018 Ford F-150, and 2018 Audi Q5. A full list of all the 2018 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.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
