Many familiar names on the list By ,

So, which cars and trucks have the best value in Canada this year? According to the 2017 Vincentric Best Value in Canada awards, Toyota, Honda, Mazda, and Ford vehicles lead the way among mainstream brands, while BMW, Lexus and Volvo top luxury brands.

“We saw numerous repeat winners this year," said Vincentric President David Wurster. "When manufacturers measure and manage a vehicle's total cost of ownership, they are able to consistently deliver high value to consumers year after year." 

Using eight ownership cost factors including depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs, Vincentric identifies the Best Value in Canada winners by measuring which vehicles have lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price. Each vehicle was evaluated in all 10 provinces plus the Northwest Territories using a range of annual kilometer intervals and insurance profiles.
