Ownership costs include a number of factors, ranging from price competitiveness when a new vehicle is up to how well that value lasts when the vehicle is used. The warranty coverage is also a consideration, among other factors.
With consumer preferences switching from cars to SUVs, KBB adds three new SUV segments for 2019: subcompact SUVs, subcompact luxury SUVs and compact luxury SUVs. The company also reduced its full size car category.
The Best New Model award is also new for 2019, which is designed to provide guidance to consumers about new vehicles or redesigned as Best Buy for this year. The winner for 2019 is the Volvo XC40, a new subcompact luxury SUV.
Without further ado, Best Buy winners in several segments:
