2020 Jeep Wrangler – 2-Door
For its sixth win, the Wrangler was singled out for the second year in a row as the leader in the Off-Road SUV category.
“Jeep has kept the Wrangler as capable as its predecessors and relevant among a sea of car-based crossovers. It also offers a surprising amount of value, as the starting price is under $30,000, plus the Wrangler offers strong 5-Year Cost to Own,” note the KBB editors.
If you need a Jeep Wrangler with more space, the 4-door configuration offers substantial value as well. It earned second place in KBB’s 5-Year Cost to Own awards.
2020 Fiat 124 Spider
KBB editors praised the 2020 Fiat 124 Spider’s fun-to-drive performance, singling out the Abarth trim as their favorite model, thanks to its limited-slip differential and sport suspension. Its reliability also scored high marks with the editors.

The 2020 Chrysler Voyager may be new to the minivan segment, but it’s definitely made an impression on the KBB editors. Taking over the top value prize from the Honda Odyssey (2019 winner), the 2020 Voyager “represents a lot of vehicle for the money,” according to KBB editors. It’s more affordable than the popular, award-winning Chrysler Pacifica, but the Voyager still delivers on connectivity tech, design, and performance.
