Following head-to-head testing on 2020 model-year cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs, Kelley Blue Book’s expert editors have announced the 2020 Best Buy Award Winners. The awards honor the top new model-year vehicles available in the U.S. market in 16 major categories, along with the newest award introduced last year, Best New Model.
Starting with the more than 300 new models available for 2020, the awards are based on a year-long regimen of expert evaluation and testing of nearly every new vehicle available in America, with a specific focus on the best combination of quality, safety, comfort, driving dynamics, dependability, low ownership costs and affordability. As part of their decision-making process, Kelley Blue Book’s experts also analyze a wide array of vehicle-related data, including vehicle pricing, 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 information.
