With seven vehicles honored with Best Bet recognition from The Car Book—America’s oldest ongoing vehicle-buying publication—Chevrolet once again showed that it leads the industry in meeting the demands of today’s vehicle shoppers.
According to Chevrolet Slidell, the Best Bet awards are based on nine factors, including safety, efficiency, ownerships costs, and warranty coverage, and this year went to the following members of the Bowtie team:
- Chevy Sonic—The big winner from the subcompact segment—and, in fact, the only Best Bet from the class—was the Sonic, which also will become one of the first vehicles in America (with the Chevy Spark) to offer integration of Siri, Apple’s virtual valet service.
- Chevy Cruze—Moving up to the compact category, the brand had two Best Bet winners, including the Cruze; making the difference here: perfect scores for “crash tests,” “safety features,” and “repair costs.”
- Chevy Volt—Joining the Cruze as a compact Best Bet was the high-efficiency Volt, backed by an enhanced all-electric, zero-emissions driving range of 38 miles for the 2013 model year.
- Chevy Malibu—The Malibu garnered Best Bet recognition in the “intermediate” class, where it achieved the same overall score as premium sedans like the Cadillac CTS and BMW 5 Series.
- Chevy Tahoe—Showing some unexpected momentum early in the year, the Tahoe not only scored as a Best Bet in the large SUV segment, but also was named a segment winner in the 2013 J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study, announced earlier this month.
- Chevy Silverado—The 2013 Silverado will soon be replaced by an all-new 2014 truck, but the current model still provides some notable advantages—like the only Best Bet rating in The Car Book’s standard pickup class.
