Toyota Models Earn Nods For KBB Best Buy Awards
December is the time when various publications start looking at the year that was and the year to come in automobiles, a time of thoughtful consideration that is quickly followed by a number of "Car of the Year" awards that focus on a number of different things. Kelley Blue Book, for example, uses year-end to release their "Best Buy Awards," which do, in fact, look at which vehicles are the best of the forthcoming model year, but also give consideration to how much those excellent vehicles cost. This year, the dedicated staff at Charlesglen Toyota were pleased to see that several Toyota models were named finalists in their segments for the 2016 KBB Best Buy Awards.
Those models include the 2016 Toyota Corolla, 2016 Toyota Avalon, 2016 Toyota Highlander, 2016 Toyota Sequoia, 2016 Toyota Sienna, 2016 Toyota Mirai and 2016 Toyota Tacoma. While there are 12 vehicle categories total earning nominations and awards, Toyota only had models eligible for nine of those categories, so having nine finalists is all the more impressive. No other automaker earned such sweeping praise across the board, proving once again what a diverse and versatile brand Toyota can be.
Here in Calgary, Toyota trucks, cars and SUVs were popular purchases long before KBB.com mentioned their credibility as potential Best Buys, but having a few honors bestowed upon some of our most respected models certainly doesn't hurt anything in the eyes of consumers or your friendly neighborhood Toyota dealership.
As 2015 draws to a close, we look forward to the new model year and all the incredibly good things bound to come along with it. That includes honors like these Kelley Blue Book Best Buy nominations.
