Toyota Avalon

The large car segment has a familiar winner, as the Toyota Avalon continued to deliver high value by winning Vincentric’s Best Value in America™ award for the third year in a row. With its ownership costs over 11% lower than expected, this vehicle delivers more than just leg room. Although it didn’t win, the Chevrolet Impala was a solid runner-up.
