Vehicles with the Best Resale Value

January 18, 2018

Kelley Blue Book recently announced the winners of its 2018 Best Resale Value Awards, with Toyota and Porsche taking the top honors as best value brand, and best luxury brand.

Toyota was tops in three vehicle categories, while Porsche had four vehicles on the win list.

Now in its 16th year, the Best Resale Value Awards recognize vehicles for their projected retained value through the initial five-year ownership period.

If you are considering any of these award-winning vehicles, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise for the best prices in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
