2021 U.S. Best Cars for Money Winners Defined: Toyota Won Most Awards

Winners of the 2021 Best Cars for the Money Awards have been picked out by U.S.News & World Report.

The awards cover 11 different automotive classes. The winners have the best-in-class combination of quality and value.

To measure quality, editors of the aforementioned resource collected and analyzed every published, credible review of a given model to get the consensus opinion on a vehicle’s drivability, comfort, connectivity, technologies, then united those data with fuel efficiency, cargo space, safety and reliability to receive a numerical overall score.

To measure value, U.S.News & World Report combined 5-year total ownership costs from Vincentric with real-time transaction prices reported by TrueCar.

Toyota won four wins, Kia and Honda – three awards each, Hyundai won one award.
