Kelley Blue Book Names 2018 Best Auto Tech Award Winners
On the heels of its 10 Best Automotive Technologies of 2018 list, Kelley Blue Book names the 2018 Best Auto Tech Award winners, honoring the models with the most advanced infotainment, convenience and active safety features at a great value to car buyers. Though many cars today offer loads of cutting-edge technology at increasingly attainable prices, one critically important measure helped catapult the Honda Accord and Audi Q5 into their respective winner’s circles: execution.
“The fact that a family sedan starting in the mid-$20,000 range offers such a comprehensive suite of standard safety technology is impressive, considering that some manufacturers still require buyers to opt for pricey top-of-the-line trim levels to get these features, if they offer them at all,” said Michael Harley, group managing editor for Kelley Blue Book. “There is no shortage of technology in premium and luxury cars, but finding the right mix of price and high tech takes a bit of thinking. And so, for the third annual Kelley Blue Book Best Auto Tech Award Winners, KBB.com editors picked the completely redesigned 2018 Audi Q5 as the winner in the luxury category.”
