Best Cars to Buy for 2017

November 17, 2016

This week, Kelley Blue Book (KBB) released the results of their Best Buy Awards for 2017.

The awards pick the best vehicle in 12 different categories, based on costs, value, performance, and ease-of-use. The awards are judged by editors that get to see and test virtually every vehicle on the market. Check out the full results below.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the best deals being 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.
