IntelliChoice Announces 2012 Best Value of the Year Award Winners

Feb 2, 2012
Today, vehicle cost analysis specialist IntelliChoice announced the winners of its 2012 Best Value of the Year award. The company crunches the numbers in the areas of depreciation, maintenance, repairs, fuel, fees, financing, and insurance in order to determine the winners, which are calculated to have the lowest total cost of ownership.

Fuel economy figured prominently among this year's crop of winners, with 5 of the 24 category winners being hybrid models. Other category winners are offered in hybrid trims, but the award was given to the overall model line, such as the Lexus RX and Toyota Highlander.
Toyota dominated this year's list with nine category winners for the Toyota brand, and 12 winners, when company's Lexus luxury brand is included.
