2012 Toyota Avalon

It was no surprise to see the Toyota Avalon in first place, as this popular large sedan snatched its seventh Vincentric Best Value in America award. The Avalon continued to demonstrate leadership in this competitive group of eight models, earning the win with its low depreciation and best-in-class maintenance and fuel costs. The Buick LaCrosse was a close runner-up, but couldn’t beat the Avalon’s ownership costs which were almost 9% lower than expected.


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.
