Cars With the Best Resale Value
November 28, 2012
This week, ALG
released a list of new vehicles with the highest projected resale values. This is an important factor to take into consideration, regardless of whether you plan to buy or lease your vehicle. This is because depreciation easily makes up the largest portion of your overall vehicle ownership costs.
Among mainstream brands, Honda ranked #1 for resale value, followed by Hyundai - which is very impressive considering it used to be ranked near the bottom as recently as 2007.
Toyota, however, had the most vehicles chosen as #1 in their category (including Scion and Lexus).
Among premium brands, Acura ranked #1 followed by Infiniti and Audi. Check out the rest of the list below and make sure you use the free
