The Best Cars By Category
November 20, 2014When purchasing a new car, all the choices available can make the entire process very confusing. Plus with all the information overload, researching vehicle options can take up so much time it almost becomes a part-time job!
To help give car shoppers a good starting point, Kelley Blue Book (KBB) just released the winners of its 2015 Best Buy Awards. Throughout the last 12 months, experts at KBB evaluated almost every 2015 vehicle available for purchase in the United States, looking at things like price, performance, cost-to-own, depreciation, and fuel efficiency.
The 2015 Ford F-150 was crowned the Overall Best Buy winner due in part to its advanced technology and new aluminum body. Other top winners include the 2015 Honda Civic for small cars, 2015 Chevrolet Volt for electric/hybrids, and 2015 Honda Odyssey for minivans. See below for the full list of winners.
If you're considering any of these award-winning vehicles, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the lowest prices being offered in your local area.
