It’s the new year, and with it, many people are in the market for a new vehicle. With countless new vehicles introduced each year, it can be overwhelming to decide which is best for you and your needs.

So, strap on your seatbelt and imagine yourself behind the wheel as we spotlight some of the most highly sought-after new vehicles on the road.

2024 Honda Accord

Claiming this year’s Best Buy Award for its class, the 2024 Honda Accord is the “king of midsize sedans,” according to experts. With 32 combined mpg, a spacious interior, and updated technology, this vehicle will far from disappoint. The driver’s seat is well-cushioned and supportive for long trips, making it a joy to drive. It also tops the list in resale value for its sector. The starting price for the 2024 Honda Accord is about $28,000. Similar contenders to consider include the 2024 Honda Civic, the 2024 Toyota Prius, and the 2024 Hyundai Elantra. If you aren’t dead set on a brand-new vehicle, consider taking a look at the 2022 Toyota Avalon.

2024 Kia Telluride

Winning both Kelley Blue Book’s best 3-row and best mid-size SUV, the 2024 Kia Telluride is a favorite among SUV lovers. The vehicle has won every KBB Best Buy Award for its class since it debuted in 2020. This year’s model of the Kia Telluride offers a comfortable interior, refined looks, and updated technology, which includes navigation-based smart cruise control. It can also seat up to eight occupants, with a cup holder for each. This top-notch SUV also ranks high in resale value and is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+. The asking price for the 2024 Kia Telluride is about $36,000. Other noteworthy SUVs to ponder include the 2024 Hyundai Kona, the 2024 Honda CR-V, and the 2024 Ford Expedition.

2024 Ford F150

One of America’s top choices for trucks time and time again, you can never go wrong with the Ford F150. While this year’s model narrowly missed taking home KBB’s Best Buy Award for its class, it has won the past nine consecutive years. Since 2021, the truck has been made from aluminum-intensive material, meaning it can haul more weight with leading-class towing abilities. This vehicle comes standard with a 2.7-liter V6 engine, raising standard horsepower and torque levels. Buyers also have the option to choose from other great engine types, including a hybrid drivetrain. With a max payload of 2,455 pounds and 22 combined mpg, the 2024 Ford F150 is a truck that can’t be matched. The asking price for this vehicle is about $37,000. Some other highly rated trucks include the 2024 Toyota Tacoma and the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500. If you’re looking for a truck with higher horsepower, be sure to check out the 2024 Ram 1500.

2024 Toyota Sienna

Motorists with children will love the 2024 Toyota Sienna. Winning both KBB’s Best Buy Award and Best Resale Value Award for its class, this minivan excels in many ways. The 2024 Toyota Sienna can seat up to eight people, offers all-wheel drive, and delivers up to 36 mpg. It can also tow up to 3,500 pounds, enough weight for a small boat or off-road vehicle. The new Sienna has hands-free doors, spacious cargo, and strong resale value. Additionally, it has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+ and a 5-star crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The asking price for the 2024 Toyota Sienna is about $37,000. Notable contenders from KBB include the 2024 Honda Odyssey, 2024 Chrysler Pacifica, and 2024 Kia Carnival.

2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid

If you’re in the market for a hybrid vehicle, the 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid is the way to go. Honda says about half of all CR-V buyers will choose the hybrid model, and for good reason. The hybrid vehicle is propelled by a 204-horsepower drivetrain, giving it more power than the all-gas CR-V. Like all hybrid vehicles, the new CR-V offers lower fuel bills. It also has lower cargo floors, all-wheel drive, and traffic jam assist. All gas models included, the new CR-V took home KBB’s Best Buy and Best Family Car awards. The starting price for the 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid is about $33,000. If you’re looking for something that isn’t an SUV, the 2024 Toyota Prius is an excellent choice. For truck lovers interested in a hybrid alternative, be sure to check out last year’s model of the Ford F150 SuperCrew Cab.

2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5

A staple of 21st-century technology, the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a beast among electric vehicles. Taking home this year’s KBB Electric Vehicle Best Buy Award, the Ioniq 5 offers an outstanding range of 303 miles between charges. It also charges at an impressive rate, from 10% to 80% in as little as 18 minutes. This year’s Ioniq comes equipped with updated technology, including highway driving assist, additional airbags, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. It also boasts a spacious interior and handsome exterior. The starting price for the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is about $42,000. If the new Ioniq model isn’t quite your speed, check out the 2024 Kia EV9, 2024 Ford F150 Lightning, or 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV.
