AutoNXT Logo By Perry Stern of AutoNXT | Slide 1 of 22: When it’s time to shop for a new car, many consumers only consider the price of the car — or that and finding their favorite color. Unfortunately, there are many costs associated with owning a car beyond the purchase price, such as depreciation, maintenance and fuel costs. These additional expenditures can vary greatly depending on the vehicle purchased. Kelley Blue Book has done extensive analysis to determine which vehicles are the cheapest to own over a five-year period, taking into account such factors as financing, insurance and state fees, fuel costs, scheduled maintenance and repairs, and ultimately depreciation of the vehicle. What follows are new vehicles that KBB says will be the least costly to own, listed by category.
