2012 Volvo XC90

It looks like the Volvo XC90 is getting used to being the cream of the crop, winning the Vincentric Best Value in America award for the second year in row. This stylish crossover had no problem beating out 9 other crossovers in this category, with top scores in depreciation and insurance costs. Other driving forces included low fuel costs and total cost of ownership that was 3% less than expected.  This premium crossover demonstrates that premium vehicles can also be great values.
