    U.S. News Names 2022 Best Cars For The Money Winners

    U.S. News & World Report is sharing its 2022 Best Cars for the Money awards. They cover 11 automotive categories and the magazine picks the cars, SUVs and minivans it believes offer the best combination of long-term value and excellent ownership experience. For the second time, U.S. News will present the awards at the Washington, D.C. Auto Show.

    “Buying a new car is a big decision, and finding a car that is a good value requires more than just a low price tag,” said Jim Sharifi, managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars. “The least expensive car on the lot could carry high ownership costs, or be poorly suited to the buyer’s needs. A Best Cars for the Money award represents a strong value at the dealership and over the course of ownership. These vehicles also provide a rewarding ownership experience, with comfort, features and performance that buyers will appreciate.”

    Hyundai Wins Most Awards

    The brand that won the most awards this year is Hyundai, winning five different categories. Honda earned three awards, while Kia, Nissan and Toyota each earned one.

    The Honda Odyssey becomes a six-time award winner,  while the Toyota Avalon takes home its fourth win for Best Large Car for the Money.  The Honda Civic earned its third award, while two-time winners include the Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Versa. The Honda Accord, Hyundai Elantra Hybrid and Hyundai Tucson Hybrid are new to the list, each winning the award for the first time. The list is absent of any U.S. automakers.
