IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A big part of car shopping used to be dedicated to separating the good models from the bad, but today the challenge lies in sifting through all the great cars to find the very best according to your individual wants and needs.  To give shoppers a smart place to start their potential new-car search, the editors at Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com, the only vehicle valuation and information source trusted and relied upon by both consumers and the automotive industry, have named the 10 Most Awarded Cars of 2015

Kelley Blue Book's experts culled through the winners data from Kelley Blue Book's 2015 Awards (including the Best Buy Awards, Best Resale Value Awards, 5-Year Cost to Own Awards and Brand Image Awards), along with all of the various accolade car lists from the KBB.com Editorial staff this year (including the 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000, Best Family Cars, 10 Tech-Savviest Cars Starting Under $20,000 and many more), to create this list of the vehicles that were most lauded by the company in 2015.

"Kelley Blue Book's awards and accolades are some of the most recognized in the industry, largely because they exist solely to help new-car shoppers make smart purchase decisions and to help people discover which car is right for them," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "Our Kelley Blue Book experts drive and review nearly every new car on the road each year so we have a wealth of knowledge that fuels our Top 10 lists and editorial awards, while our analysts crunch billions of data points to help determine which vehicles make the cut for Kelley Blue Book's awards.  While the best car for your individual needs might not be on this particular list, it is a good place to start your research."
