Hyundai Wins Best Brand in’s “5-year Cost to Own” Competition


This year, Hyundai has dethroned Subaru on Kelley Blue Book’s list of most cost-effective vehicles. This is thanks to solid engineering, innovative design, and one of the best new vehicle warranties in the business. Read on to learn about the Hyundai awards , and then come visit the preferred Hyundai dealer around Moore and Mustang, AutoMax Hyundai of Norman, for a tour of the inventory and some test-drives.

The Criterion for the Test

Every year Kelley Blue Book calculates the cost of owning each individual brand and trim of a vehicle over a period of five years. This massive task takes into account the cost of maintenance, repairs, fuel, financing, and insurance, among other factors. The analysts compiling that information also examine the initial cost to purchase the vehicle and the projected depreciation over the five-year period. While Subaru previously held the title for most cost-effective brand over a 5-year period of ownership, Hyundai has pulled the rug from under, becoming the wisest investment on the market.
