Every year, Kelley Blue Book hands out its annual 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. The automotive authority created these coveted awards to help car buyers make informed decisions when they’re looking for a new car. Kelley Blue Book analyzes the forecasted costs new car owners are expected to pay over the first five years vehicles are owned to determine the winners of the 5-Year Cost to Own Awards.

Vehicles that have the lowest projected five-year total for designated costs in the first 60 months of ownership win a 5-Year Cost to Own Award in their respective automotive classes. Kelley Blue Book looks at specific projected costs, such as fuel expenses, registration fees, insurance costs, and depreciation, before declaring a winner in each segment.
