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.

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:
