    A car, SUV or pickup doesn’t have to be inexpensive to be considered a good value—it just has to deliver on its promise. The following cars, SUVs, pickups, sports cars, and hatchbacks received the highest value scores in our most recent owner satisfaction survey because they gave their owners exactly what they expected from them. (In some cases we list alternative models that also scored well but not high enough to top their respective categories.)
