A large American car and a small Japanese one represent the two best values to buyers of new cars, according to IntelliChoice.
Buick's luxury sedan, the Park Avenue, and Honda's fuel-efficient Civic VX hatchback were named as the best American and import car values.
IntelliChoice officially released the results in its 1992 editions of "The Complete Car Cost Guide" and "The Complete Small Truck Cost Guide."
IntelliChoice picks the best overall values in 19 categories ranging from subcompact cars to luxury cars.
Cars built by the Big Three U.S. automakers account for 34 percent of those vehicles named as the No. 1 or No. 2 values. Japanese cars and trucks account for 45 percent. Of the No. 1 picks, four were made by Honda and Toyota, while three were built by Ford.
