About the 5-Year Cost to Own Award

The 5-Year Cost to Own awards are designed to give drivers in Cincinnati and beyond an idea of which vehicles will cost the least to own and operate over a 5-year period.  In determining the winners, KBB.com considers virtually every 2014 vehicles for sale in the U.S., taking into account such criteria as purchase price, projected depreciation, insurance costs, and financing costs. These awards help drivers know what to expect — and it should come as no surprise that 4 Chevy models have made the list.

In addition to its affordable price and impressive efficiency, KBB.com lauded the fact that “even a base Spark is well-equipped with features like air conditioning, power windows, 15-inch alloy wheels, OnStar, and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat.” Many visitors to our Florence, KY dealership appreciate its impressive versatility, and we’re sure you will, too.

The electric version of the spark took home the 5-Year Cost to Own honor in the Plug-In Vehicle category. Unfortunately, the 2014 Spark EV is currently only available in limited markets, but the fact that it’s earning accolades bodes well for the model, and for the possibility of seeing others like it in the Chevrolet lineup in the future.  In addition to praising the fact that it’s an IIHS Top Safety Pick, KBB.com appreciated the model’s long list of standard features and its distinct styling.
