2021 Volvo XC90 and Volvo S90 Win KBB Cost to Own Award
2021 Volvo XC90 and 2021 Volvo S90 are more than just top-of-the-line luxury vehicles — they also boast among the lowest projected ownership and maintenance costs within their respective segments. That’s why the experts at Kelley Blue Book recently awarded the midsize SUV and midsize sedan with the Five-Year Cost to Own Award. These impressive wins come on the heels of the Volvo V90’s win during the 2020 KBB award season.
What it takes to win a 5-Year Cost to Own Award
When it comes to buying a luxury model, it’s easy to fixate on the sticker price, but Kelley Blue Book’s Five-Year Cost to Own study goes beyond a vehicle’s MSRP. The industry experts at KBB project the five-year cost of ownership for new models by accounting for a wide variety of factors. To give shoppers a more comprehensive view of car ownership costs, KBB factors in fuel expenses, financing fees, insurance costs, and taxes, as well as how much you should expect to pay for maintenance and repairs.
