2014 Models With Biggest Price Drops

January 15, 2015

Every year, car manufacturers unveil a number of vehicles that are new for that particular year, and 2014 was no exception. Now that it's a year later, car buyers may be interested in knowing just how much value those "new to 2014" vehicles held.

Forbes recently released a list of the top "new to 2014" vehicles that held their value the best -- as well as those that had the worst value retention. You may want to consider buying the vehicles on the worst value retention list if you're looking to get a good deal on a slightly used vehicle.

The top value holder amongst 2014 models was the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, retaining 84.7% of value from its MSRP. While in comparison, the Mitsubishi Mirage had the worst value retention, holding on to only 54.5% of its value from MSRP. Below is a look at the top five value winners and losers.

If you're considering buying a new car, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, RydeShopper and CarsDirect to see the best deals being offered in your local area.
