Kiplinger's New Car Coverage

While we no longer maintain a database of specs and costs on every new car model, Kiplinger’s remains a go-to source for advice on getting the best deal on your next set of wheels.

You likely have landed on this page in search of a sortable database of new-car specs and prices. Unfortunately, Kiplinger.com no longer maintains such a tool; we recommend KBB.com and Edmunds.com to look up and compare details on specific vehicles.

However, we remain committed to advising readers how to get the best value when shopping for new and used cars. We also remain a great source of guidance on maintaining your car to get the most out of it while you own it – and when you ultimately sell it. Consider some of our most popular Cars features:
