24 Cars with Highest Resale Values

December 5, 2013

According to a recent article on Forbes.com, new cars on average kept only about 38% of their original value after five years. That's a considerable hit to your wallet if you're expecting the car you're buying now to help you purchase another one in a few years.

To help you get a better handle on what cars retain their values the best, Forbes put together a list of the 24 cars with the best resale values. On the list are models such as the Hyundai Accent, Toyota Avalon, Chevy Camaro, and Kia Soul.

If you're considering one of these high resale value vehicles, be sure to use TrueCar to compare real prices where you live.
