Three Toyota Models Named Best Cost to Own
Three Toyota Models Named Best Cost to Own! The 2018 Toyota Tacoma, 2018 Toyota Prius C, and 2018 Toyota Corolla iM were named to the 2018 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Awards for the lowest projected cost of ownership in their respective segments for the initial five-year ownership period. These costs include depreciation, fuel costs, financing, insurance, states fees and fees for scheduled maintenance and repairs.
Best compact car, the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM, impressed KBB editors because, “Now in its second year after being released from Scion prison, the Toyota Corolla iM hatchback is making its way in the big world of compact cars. This year’s win in Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own Awards competition, as well as a third-place finish in our Best Resale Value Awards scrum, point to a small car with big eyes for value and reliability.”
The 2018 Toyota Prius C was named in the category for Best Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car because, “Efficient, low-cost transportation is what the Toyota Prius c was born to provide. Just consider two of its most crucial numbers: A starting price around $21,500 and fuel economy of up to 48 mpg. Here’s another: This marks the fourth time the Toyota Prius c has been crowned the Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award winner in its class.”
In the Mid-Size Pick-up Truck category, the Tacoma was named the best. KBB editors shared, “The Toyota Tacoma has been a best-selling midsize truck for more than a decade, thanks in no small part to its reputation for off-road capability, toughness, resale value and reliability. It can also add the segment-best 2018 5-Year Cost to Own data to its arsenal.”
