Vincentric 2017 Best Value in Canada Awards

Vincentric 2017 Best Value in Canada Awards

Once per year Vincentric performs a cost of ownership analysis at the model level to determine Vincentric Best Value in Canada awards for the consumer market. Vincentric measures cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs. Using a statistical model, winners were identified by measuring which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price. Each vehicle was evaluated in all 10 provinces using a range of annual mileage intervals and insurance profiles. A full list of winners is shown below. 

The 6th annual Vincentric Best Value in Canada awards were announced today with Toyota Motor Corporation leading the way with nine total awards, including the Lexus Best Value Luxury brand award in the SUV/Crossover category. Hondas performance was also impressive, winning the Best Value brand award for non-luxury SUVs, Crossovers, & Vans along with four Best Value model awards, including the 6-time titleholder Honda CR-V.
 
The three other brand award winners, Mazda (Best Value Passenger Car), BMW (Best Value Luxury Car), and Ford (Best Value Pickup) each claimed brand awards for the second year in a row. Other brands with multiple models winning Vincentric Best Value in Canada awards were Kia, Audi, and Volvo. Overall, over half of all model-level winners returned as repeat champions of their segments.
 
We saw numerous repeat winners this year, said Vincentric President, David Wurster. When manufacturers measure and manage a vehicles total cost of ownership, they are able to consistently deliver high value to consumers year after year.
