Consumer Reports found Toyota Prius to be the best value for automotive dollar in its annual Best New-Car Value analysis, Prius stripped No.1 spot from Honda Fit hatchback which has been the best new-car value winner for the last four years.
To decide which cars represent the "best value" the magazine compared each car`s estimated ownership costs to its scores in the magazine`s performance tests as well as its predicted reliability.
The reason Prius came out on top this year, even though the Fit costs less and has a lower estimated cost of ownership, is that the predicted-reliability rating of the Prius is slightly higher than the Fit’s.
"There are plenty of less expensive cars, But they can`t match the Prius for its comfortable ride, competent handling, roomy interior, excellent reliability, and, of course, it’s great fuel economy”, consumer Reports posted on its website.
