2012 BEST RESALE VALUE: BY VEHICLE CATEGORY

Kbb.com Offers Advice on Choosing New Cars Predicted to Maintain Value over Five-Year Ownership Period


IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Kelley Blue Book, the leading provider of new and used vehicle information, announces the all-new 2012 model-year vehicle winners of its annual Best Resale Value Awards, recognizing current and forthcoming vehicles for their projected retained value throughout the initial five-year ownership period. Since depreciation (or loss of value) is typically a car buyer’s primary expense during ownership, these awards, like all of kbb.com’s new- and used-vehicle information, are designed to help consumers make more informed car-buying decision.

Obviously whoever wrote that MSN article is a little blue oval biased. How the hell can having a lampost for a rear end that hasn't changed too much since the '70's have better handling than our independant rear suspension? They fail to mention that you have to option up/pay more $ to get the "track pack". and better quality interior. I sat in one and almost barf'd. This is the sort of stuff that makes me

Well, as most of the magazine tests have stated, its better to have a well refined SRA vs a mediocre IRS. Not trying to start an argument here, but i think its been proven time and time again that the SRA in the s197 is on par, or flat out outperforms cars with IRS on the roadcourse and the strip. Just sayin... Whats it matter if the mustang and camaro use two different methods to arrive at the same place? Saying the mustangs IRS is 70's technology and doesnt get the job done, is like someone saying the old pushrod LS motors is 70's technology and doesnt get the job done. Its not true for either statements. Neither is saying the technology hasnt changed since the 70's. As far as the interior goes, hey thats your opinion. Most (non biased) people tend to agree that the interior in the mustang is much better than the camaro, just as they tend to agree that the the exterior of the camaro looks better than the mustangs currently.

The only opinion that matters to me is my own and I think the Mustang interior does suck. Just my 2 cents.

As the owner of both...I think that the Mustang's interior is of better quality than the Camaro and definitely more durable so I think the barf comments are a little over the top. But the Camaro does win...hands down...when it comes to handling and style!
