Congratulations to Lexus for winning KBB.com’s 2013 5-Year Cost to Own Award in the Luxury Brand category. This award is given to the 2013 model-year vehicles and brands (in both luxury and non-luxury categories) with the lowest projected ownership costs based on Kelly Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars for the initial five-year ownership period.
Based on analysis of Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own information for 2013 model-year new vehicles, Lexus is this year’s luxury brand winner, exemplifying some of the lowest costs for depreciation, fuel, and maintenance and repairs of any luxury brand. Some of the key models contributing to Lexus’ standout performance include the CT200h, ES and IS models.
In addition, the redesigned 2013 Lexus GS is a top contender among the luxury car segment, beating Audi’s A5 and A6 models. The vehicle’s low depreciation and maintenance and repair costs make it this year’s 5-Year Cost to Own Award: Luxury Car winner. The depreciation cost for the Lexus GS came in 6.4 percent below the Audi A5 and 21.7 percent below the Audi A6.
