The Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards are designed to provide a significant service to new-car buyers by identifying the best of all available 2019 model-year vehicles. 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 15 categories, and then spent several weeks testing and evaluating all the finalists head-to-head to ultimately determine the winners.
