What it means to be a best CPO value award winner
Everyone knows that an Infiniti Q60 isn’t exactly the most affordable model you could choose, but Vincentric considers more than sticker price when picking a winner. When assessing the candidates, the awards panel considered the five-year cost of ownership on every trim of a vehicle, spanning from the 2016 model year to 2020. It also assumed that the driver put 15,000 miles on the car annually.
Ownership costs include familiar expenses like fuel, fees, taxes, repairs, maintenance, and insurance, along with depreciation. However, Vincentric goes a step further by considering opportunity costs, which is the amount of money you could’ve made by investing instead of purchasing a vehicle. With all of that considered, the Infiniti Q60 rose to the top of it segment.
“The Infiniti Q60 had lower ownership costs compared to competing Luxury Coupe vehicles,” said David Wurster, Vincentric President. “The Q60’s strong performance in the 2021 Vincentric Best CPO Value in America Awards shows that it’s a great value for consumers who are in the market for a luxury certified pre-owned vehicle.”
Jeff Pope, the Group Vice President of INFINITI Americas, expressed his pride in the Q60’s recent win. In a press release, he explained that the win was reflective of the hard-working Infiniti engineers and designers, who create durable, high-quality, vehicles.
