Singling out the highest quality and value
"With the all-new Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards, we aim to provide a significant consumer service by identifying 2015 model-year vehicles that our expert evaluators believe to be the absolute best-value choices for new-car shoppers," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "The Kelley Blue Book Best Buys will represent the highest level of quality and value of all vehicles available in the American market. While at the conclusion of the testing and evaluation period only 12 prestigious models will be deemed the 2015 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award winners, it is a very high honor for a vehicle to be chosen as a finalist for these prominent awards."
The 12 categories include: Small Car; Small SUVs; Performance Cars; Mid-Size Cars; Midsize SUVs; Full-Size Cars; Full-Size SUVs; Luxury Cars; Luxury SUVs; Electric/Hybrids; Trucks, and Minivans.
"Because there are so many varying needs and wants of car shoppers, we felt it was important to name a very prestigious and limited, yet still very diverse group of Best Buys in different categories that span the majority of segments most popular in the United States," Nerad concluded.
