TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Kelley Blue Book name brands with best resale value for 2015

US-based automotive research and vehicle valuation company Kelley Blue Book has named Subaru and Lexus as the best brand and best luxury car brand, respectively, for its 2015 Best Resale Value awards. The awards were given in recognition of their vehicles "for their projected retained value through the initial five-year ownership period."

Subaru and Lexus topped the awards for car brands by having its models claim three and six, respectively, of the 22 overall categories. Chevrolet and Toyota also made an impression by each having five models earn the coveted honor.

"Lexus notably captured the top luxury brand honors for the fourth year in a row, and after previously winning the brand award in 2011, Subaru is back on top again for 2015 as the best mainstream brand for resale value across its entire lineup," said Kelley Blue Book director of residual value consulting Eric Ibara. "While both Subaru and Lexus deliver incredible resale value, we also are impressed with the strides made by General Motors, which tops domestic automakers with seven combined awards for Chevrolet and GMC. The entire list of Top 10 Best Resale Value vehicles is dominated this year by trucks, SUVs and crossovers, which is a testament to the strength these categories will carry in the future."
