Kelly Blue Book 2016 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: Best Brands

Best Brand: Hyundai

Parlaying a well-earned reputation as a "value" brand, its signature industry-leading warranty and a growing reputation for solid vehicle quality, Hyundai captured the prestigious title as Best Brand in the Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own awards program.

With strong models in the key sedan segments and a growing list of well-regarded crossovers, Hyundai offers vehicles that many Americans can immediately get cozy with. And if there were lingering questions from some buyers about Korean quality, those questions should be completely dispelled by Hyundai's stellar performance in key quality comparison measures of late.

For those who take a green view on autodom, Hyundai offers a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and a fuel cell vehicle, but it is Hyundai's mainstream vehicles that were most instrumental in gaining the CTO crown. From the small Accent to the mighty Equus, Hyundai has you covered with high-quality, low-maintenance cars that are economical to own.
