U.S. News & World Report will present the 2022 Best Cars for the Money awards at The 2022 Washington, D.C. Auto Show

WASHINGTON, Dec. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a tumultuous period for countless industries, the mobility sector is in the midst of supply chain shortages, an increase in vehicle prices, and scarce dealer lots nationwide. Yet, high demand remains steady from the automotive customers as society looks to maintain its freedom of mobility by purchasing new, used, and leased cars. Thankfully for consumers, U.S. News & World Report will soon have a list of the best quality cars at the best price.

"Inventory shortages have made it more difficult than ever for car buyers to find a good value," said Jim Sharifi, managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars. "A great deal can also go south quickly if you end up with a car that has high ownership costs, and many inexpensive cars do not guarantee a great ownership experience. Remember, it's not a good deal if it's not a good car."

Known as the global authority in rankings and consumer advice, U.S News & World Report will unveil the 2022 Best Cars for the Money awards at the Washington, D.C. Auto Show during the show's Public Policy Day on Thursday, January 20. Covering a variety of automotive categories that are most important to consumers, the 2022 Best Cars for the Money awards are set to highlight the cars, SUVs, and minivans that give drivers the best combination of quality and value in their respective classes. The overall score is based on safety and reliability data, as well as the collective opinion of the automotive press on a model's performance and its overall review.

"Our awards fit perfectly with the Washington, D.C. Auto Show," Sharifi added. "Like the Best Cars for the Money awards, the D.C. Auto Show is focused on helping consumers find cars that are rewarding to own while fitting their needs, lifestyle, and budget. "

The Washington, D.C. Auto Show is open to the public from Friday, January 21 through Sunday, January 30 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
