Camry and Tacoma Best Cars for the Money Award Wins Bolster Toyota Brand
This week, U.S. News & World Report released its annual Best Cars for the Money awards, and Toyota found themselves on the receiving end of two honors. The 2014 Camry was determined to be the Best Midsize Car for the Money, and the 2014 Tacoma was named Best Compact Truck for the Money. The Camry and Tacoma Best Cars for the Money award wins ad yet another feather in the cap of the best-selling retail brand of 2013.
The Camry, which can lay claim to the title of best-selling car in America twelve years running, and the Tacoma, which will receive a TRD Pro Series version later on in the fall, were tops after U.S. News & World Report combined data from TrueCar.com (avg. price paid) and Vincentric (total five-year cost of ownership) with their own Best Car rankings. U.S. News & World Report rankings are determined based upon performance, interior features and comfort, reliability, and safety.
Additionally, Toyota’s Lexus and Scion brands each scored victories. The Lexus RX 350 took home Best Luxury 2-Row Midsize SUV, and the Lexus RX Hybrid was named Best Hybrid SUV. The Scion FR-S defeated the Mazda Miata and its cousin Subaru BRZ for the title of Best Sports Car.
