KBB 2019 Best Buy Awards
After kicking the tires and running the numbers on 2019 model-year cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com expert editors recently announced the 2019 Best Buy Award winners.
Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy Awards honor the top vehicles in 14 major vehicle categories, as well as Best New Model of 2019, which is awarded to the all-new 2019 Volvo XC40.
The awards are the culmination of a year-long regimen of expert vehicle evaluation and testing of nearly every new vehicle available in America, along with analysis of a broad swath of vehicle-related data, including vehicle pricing/transaction prices, 5-Year Cost to Own data (which includes depreciation, insurance, maintenance, financing, fuel, fees and taxes for new cars), consumer reviews and ratings, and vehicle sales/retail sales information. Of more than 300 new-car models available for 2019, Kelley Blue Book’s expert editors initially narrowed the field to a few dozen Best Buy Award contenders in 14 major vehicle categories and then spent several weeks testing and evaluating all the finalists head-to-head to ultimately determine the winners.
