Seven Toyota vehicles took the top spot in IntelliChoice’s “2011 Best Overall Value of the Year Awards” at the 2011 National Automobile Dealers Association convention.
“Dominating the IntelliChoice’s 2011 Best Overall Value Awards is another example of how Toyota and Lexus continue to produce vehicles that retain their outstanding value,” said Don Esmond, senior vice president of Automotive Operations for Toyota Motor Sales, USA in a recent press release. “In a tough economy, finding a dependable vehicle that also holds its value over an extended period is one of the most important aspects of buying a new car.”
IntelliChoice determines the winners of the BOVY Awards based on the top vehicles in 21 categories that represent the best overall value. Each winner is determined by analysis of ownership costs, including depreciation, maintenance, repairs, fuel, fees, financing and insurance.
