Are you a savvy shopper who also likes smart shortcuts? You’ve come to the right place. The ninth annual Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards highlight the singular cars, trucks, and SUVs we recommend and endorse for the most shoppers across a variety of vehicle segments. Every year we spend thousands of hours driving and researching hundreds of cars, and our Best Buy Awards are the purest distillation of those efforts. Our awards span a wide range of sizes and prices. We give extra weight to financial considerations like expected resale value and historical reliability. Our goal, as always, is to make it easy for you to shop like an expert.
