Once per year Vincentric performs a cost of ownership analysis at the model level to determine Vincentric Best Value in America™ Awards. Vincentric measures cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Using a statistical model, winners were identified by measuring which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price. Each vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus D.C. using a range of annual mileage intervals and insurance profiles. A full list of winners is shown below.
