Consumer Reports “Best value for automotive dollar

Overall Best Value: Toyota Prius

Best Value Small Hatchbacks: Toyota Prius Four

Worst Value Small Hatchbacks: Ford Focus SE

Best Value Family Sedan: Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE

Worst Value Family Sedan: Chrysler 200 Limited (V6)

Best Value Large /Luxury SUV: Lexus RX 350

Worst Value Large /Luxury SUV: Nissan Armada Platinum

Best Value Minivan/Wagon: Toyota Prius V Three

Worst Value Minivan/Wagon: Chrysler Town & Country Touring-L

Best Value Small SUV: Honda CR-V EX

Worst Value Small SUV: Mini Cooper Countryman S

From Consumer Reports:

The Toyota Prius is the best value for your automotive dollar, unseating the Honda Fit, which has held the title for the past four years, our new analysis shows.

There are plenty of less expensive cars. But they can’t match the Prius for its comfortable ride, competent handling, roomy interior, excellent reliability, and, of course, its great fuel economy.

How do we measure value? The same way you may measure value in any other investment: by weighing the cost, benefit, and risk. The cars that are the best values are those that combine a low cost to operate, good reliability, and good performance in our tests.

Like penny stocks, a low purchase price doesn’t make a car a good value. The Nissan Versa sedan, for example, is one of the least expensive cars on the market. Yet it had a mediocre score in our tests and is not reliable. So despite its low price, it’s not worth the money, especially when you could buy a Hyundai Accent for just $500 more. That would get you a much nicer and more reliable car.

The same principle applies to bigger cars. The midsized Dodge Journey SUV sells for about $1,500 less than a V6 Toyota Highlander, yet its lower test scores and reliability make it much less of a value.

This year we analyzed more than 200 vehicles that our auto experts have recently tested, focusing on the cars’ relative benefits, as represented by our road-test scores; their relative risk of having problems, as reported in our Annual Auto Survey by subscribers who own them; and estimates of each vehicle’s five-year ownership costs (see “How we determine value” below). In short, the models that perform better overall in those categories are considered to be deals among their peers.

Grey Cup recipes:

Sweet Onion Bacon Dip
6 strips of double smoked bacon, chopped
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 lbs cooking onions, peeled, halved, and thinly sliced
1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
1 ½ cups full fat mayonnaise – no miracle whip
1 cup full fat sour cream

In a small skillet, cook the bacon until the fat is rendered out. Drain bacon, reserving the fat in the pan. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add onions and salt. Cook onions over low heat, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and deep golden in color, about 1 hour. Add water if needed. Add the vinegar in the last minute of cooking. Cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, onions, and bacon.
Serve this dip with potato chips or raw celery
Spicy Sausage Heroes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 pound red bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper (or more if you want them extra spicy)
Kosher salt & black pepper to taste
6 Italian sausages – casings removed
Sausage Buns

Heat a large frying pan on the stove top, add the oil, bell peppers, onion, garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper and season with salt & pepper. Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the peppers are softened and just beginning to brown, about 6 minutes. Meanwhile, over moderate heat, brown the sausage meat until nicely browned. Once it is cooked, drain excess fat & add to the vegetables and keep warm. Brush the rolls with olive oil and toast in a frying pan or in the oven. Fill the rolls with the sausage and peppers – top with sliced provolone cheese and serve with lots of napkins
