When you’re deciding which of the many cars to buy, you’re probably looking for the one that gives you the “best bang for your buck.” You want not only a stylish design but also the latest technology and safety features.

Thankfully, U.S. News & World Report annually compiles a list of the Best Cars for the Money to highlight the ones that are both loved by the critics and also great values. The formula for determining each segment winner takes into consideration average price paid, five-year total cost of ownership data and rankings based on performance, interior features and comfort, reliability and safety ratings.

“The winning cars have the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value. In essence, these are the cars that will leave you feeling like you got a great car and a great deal,” said Jamie Page Deaton.
