Porsche wins the 2016 Best Luxury Brand award. In recent years Porsche has expanded its lineup to include the Panamera, a Luxury Large Car, as well as the Cayenne and Macan SUVs.

"The U.S. News Best Vehicle Brands convey quality, experience and credibility, and can ease purchasing decisions when shopping for a vehicle, " says Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor of Best Cars at U.S. News. "Consumers have an overwhelming number of factors to consider when comparing cars. These awards help to simplify one part of the shopping experience by highlighting the top brands in specific vehicle categories."
The Best Vehicle Brands methodology uses the combined overall scores from the U.S. News Best Cars rankings across all models in each of the award classes.
