Elizabeth City, NC, – The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse crossover utility, available at Performance Chevrolet, is the best value among large SUVs, according to USAA’s Best Value vehicles list, which identifies the top 2012 automobiles in 16 categories that give consumers the most for the money.
The Traverse offers better safety ratings, lower insurance premium costs, higher fuel economy, better overall reliability and a lower suggested retail price for Elizabeth City, NC drivers compared to other vehicles in the same category, according to USAA, which provides insurance, banking, investment and retirement products and services to 9 million members of the U.S. military and their families.
“The Chevy Traverse offers space for up to eight people, with the utility, flexibility, fuel economy, and safety features for families,” said Trey Colbert, Internet Director of Performance Chevrolet. “It has become tremendously popular among Elizabeth City consumers who are looking for both efficiency and style.”
Best Value automobiles offer the best financial value of all vehicles USAA evaluates as part of a broader rating system called USAA Preferred, which uses quantitative data to evaluate vehicles’ cost, safety and reliability, among other key factors. Nearly 80 cars, trucks and minivans are currently designated as USAA Preferred vehicles. The Best Value list represents the vehicles at the top of each category.
