2015 Best Cars for the Money

February 12th, 2015 by

Speedcraft Volkswagen is thrilled to offer U.S. News & World Report’s Best Compact Car and Best Sports Car for the Money.

Since 2007, the U.S. News & World Report has been issuing an annual ranking for the vehicles with the best long-term value in their class and the most positive consumer reviews. Each year, the vehicles of each class with the highest score are ranked as the year’s best cars for the money. The 2015 Best Cars for the Money report issued was just released, and it names not one but two Volkswagen vehicles as the best bang for your buck.

Every car, truck, SUV, and van in the country is a contender for the Best Cars for the Money ranking, but only 21 vehicles total can be selected. One for each category. Each model is ranked based on a combination of consumer reports, positive reviews, and overall long-term value of the vehicle. This year’s awards for the 2015 Best Cars for the Money covered 21 specific automotive categories, spanning the entirety of all cars, trucks and SUVs sold in the United States.

Volkswagen had two big winners this year. The sports car with the best value in the United States is the 2015 Volkswagen GTI, and the compact with the best value in the United States is the 2015 Volkswagen Golf.

The VW GTI is the sporty, ultra-high-performing sister of the VW Golf. While it doesn’t look like the other classic, speedy sports cars that make up the class, everyone who drives it is in agreement that the aggressive and nimble handling and ultra smooth powertrain is out of this world. Dollar-for-dollar, consumers and experts list the GTI at the top of the list in terms of power and performance per dollar.

The 2015 VW Golf has been named this year’s car of the year more times than we can count. And now there’s another feather in this unbeatable compact car’s proverbial hat. As the most valuable compact car of 2015, the new Golf proves that it’s one of those cars that ticks all the boxes, and it does everything better than every other car in its class. Unbeatable gas milage, versatile cargo space, durability, and a truly best-in-class cabin make it the best compact car for the money.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings are no small matter. Since 1933 U.S. News & World Report has been enabling and empowering customers to make more informed buying decisions, providing consumer advice and rankings with a variety of focuses, including automotive. This most recent report speaks volumes about the direction in which Volkswagen is headed. Building best-in-class vehicles that are built to last a generation or more, and offering them at a highly competitive price is the VW way.

If you are interested in the 2015 VW Golf or the 2015 VW GTI now that both have been officially ranked as the 2015 Best Cars for the Money, please let us know so we can get you behind the wheel and you can see what all the fuss is about.
