We know in our hearts that the Corvette is one of the best cars ever made. Now our brain can feel good about it, too.
IntelliChoice has just named the 2012 Corvette the Best Overall Value of the Year in the Premium Performance Car category for the second year in a row.
The Corvette was joined by three other General Motors products, too – the 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe was Best Full-Size SUV, the Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible Best Performance Car, and the 2012 Buick LaCrosse four-cylinder Best Premium Passenger Car.
The IntelliChoice Best Overall Value of the Year awards identify the vehicles with the lowest total cost to own and operate over the first five years of ownership. Selected from nearly 1,800 domestic and import 2012 model-year vehicles, the Best Overall Value of the Year awards recognize the best car values by class.
IntelliChoice’s BOVY awards represent the oldest and most recognized automotive data analysis focused solely on identifying vehicles that will cost significantly less to own than other vehicles in their respective class.
IntelliChoice crunches the data from manufacturers, the US government and third-parties to determine the actual costs of ownership for new vehicles over a five-year period. IntelliChoice then assigns a rating to each vehicle, and that rating is compared to others in the same market segment to determine the Best Overall Value in that class.
