Kelly Blue Book names 2015 Toyota Highlander Best Buy in class

KBB picks the Toyota Highlander as the Best Value in its mid-sized SUV class.


Kelly Blue Book (KBB) has names the 2015 Toyota Highlander the Best Buy in the hugely popular mid-sized SUV category. This win for the Highlander comes just days after the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Highlander the only Top Safety Pick+ in its class. No other vehicle like the Highlander has as a high a safety rating. Now, Highlander shoppers can also add Best Buy to their list of reasons to consider the Highlander.

KBB Best Buy Awards
KBB’s Best Buy award is new. The company may have had a little anxiety over the process because it spent a year coming up with the winners in the 12 categories it ranks. Not only did KBB test and review all of the cars in the Best Buy rankings, it also did comparison testing. Not stopping there, KBB then poured over cost of ownership and safety data to come up with a final score for the vehicles in the catagories. KBB also picked an overall winner, the 2015 Ford F-150.

KBB – Why the Highlander?
KBB likes the 2015 Toyota Highlander’s “superb combination of contemporary charm and practical capability.” KBB went on to call the Highlander a “well-styled and well-sorted midsize SUV simply does the best job of seamlessly mixing and matching the things that count most into a single engaging package.”

The Highlander Hybrid also earned a spot on the KBB 10 Most Fuel Efficient SUVs list for 2015. To read KBB’s full report and see which vehicles took home honors in other categories, please visit the KBB page here.
