“We saw numerous repeat winners this year,” Vincentric president David Wurster said in a news release. “When manufacturers measure and manage a vehicle’s total cost of ownership, they are able to consistently deliver high value to consumers year after year.”
Vincentric uses a statistical model and considers eight ownership cost factors: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs.
“Each vehicle was evaluated in all 10 provinces plus the Northwest Territories using a range of annual kilometer intervals and insurance profiles,” the data provider explained.
