NASHVILLE, TENN. – Two INFINITI models received recognition in the 2019 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: the 2019 INFINITI QX60 won in the Luxury Mid-Size SUV/Crossover segment, and the 2019 INFINITI QX80 was a winner in the Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover category.
The Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Awards honor the new vehicles and brands with the lowest projected ownership costs, based on Kelley Blue Book's 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars for the initial five-year ownership period. Kelley Blue Book takes into consideration depreciation, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for all new models. Kelley Blue Book's 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, like all new- and used-car information provided by KBB.com, exist to help shoppers make more informed new-car buying decisions by breaking down typical ownership cost details and naming the brands and models with the lowest projected five-year total.
