Have you ever been struggling with a dilemma “should I get a car or SUV”? If so, KBB is sharing with you some useful tips and insights, which will definitely come in handy to make the right choice. But first things first, let us highlight the main criteria and key requirements for new vehicles in 2020. Quality, comfort, driving dynamics, dependability, low ownership costs, and affordability ‒ these are core indicators to determine our priorities and loyalty to a certain brand. Indeed, there are no dramatic changes in comparison with the last year.
“Midsize Truck” and “Two-Row Midsize SUV” categories were included in KBB’s Best Buy Awards list after their in-depth testing. There was also a split between “Electric Car” and “Plug-in Hybrid” segments. Honda Accord keeps holding primacy among other family sedans as it is really fun to drive especially its sports model with a six-speed manual and intuitive infotainment system. What is more, Honda proved the top manufacturer, having won 5 of the 15 segments. Honda Civic is second to none because of its practical and spacious interiors and lots of versions to choose from. On the whole, it is a well-rounded compact car that goes above and beyond its seller’s reputation.
The title for the Best New Car went to Hyundai Motor Group evewon just 4 segments. Spunky driving dynamics, usable real-world driving range, generous warranty coverage ‒ these are just some of Hyundai Kona’s advantages. Competitive electric car attributes in a SUV form make it one of the main favorites.
Such manufacturing beasts as Ford and Audi are also in the list by winning multiple segments. Of course, you might be curious why luxury saloon cars or expensive sports cars have not been mentioned yet.
