2012 Volvo XC60

What tips the scales for the victor in this premium category? The Volvo XC60 must know the answer, winning the Vincentric Best Value in America award for the second year in a row. This vehicle took down 6 strong competitors with its best in class total cost of ownership, maintenance cost, and operating costs - not to mention better than average fuel costs and depreciation rates. That’s a winning combination that outdid the runner-up, Lexus RX 350.


Cost-of-Ownership Compared to Segment Averages

The Vincentric Best Value in America awards are based on the model level average of all trim levels within the model. Ownership costs for each trim level are measured at annual mileages of 10,000, 15,000, and 20,000.
