Toronto, ON., (Feb. 19, 2014) – The editors of Kelley Blue Book,, the leading provider of new and used car information, have selected three Toyota vehicles for their 5-year Cost to Own award.  

The Toyota Corolla tops the compact car category, while the Toyota Prius c won the Hybrid/Alternative Energy category. The Tacoma regular cab took top honors among mid-size pick-up trucks.  These awards are based on Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars for the initial five-year ownership period. 

While depreciation (loss of value) and fuel costs may be the greatest expenses incurred in owning a vehicle, other factors can have a significant impact on a consumer’s pocketbook  including finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for new models.  

Available on, Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own information is developed using Kelley Blue Book® Residual Values.  Kelley Blue Book calculates total ownership costs for new vehicles by applying a sophisticated valuation methodology along with critical financial data from third-party providers.
