About the Award

Once a year, Vincentric, a provider of data, knowledge, and insight into the automotive industry, conducts a cost-of-ownership analysis to determine the automobiles worthy of being named the “Best Value in America” winners among the current year’s vehicle models.

In choosing its annual victors, Vincentric assesses cost of ownership using eight factors:

  • Depreciation
  • Fees and taxes
  • Financing
  • Fuel
  • Insurance
  • Repair costs
  • Maintenance
  • Opportunity costs

A statistical model is used to identify the winners in each category, measuring which models had ownership costs that were lower than expected in consideration of their respective market segments and prices.
