Cars With Highest Resale Value

February 4, 2016

Land Rover and Subaru won top honors in this year's annual Residual Value Awards. Presented by ALG -- the analytics division of TrueCar -- the Residual Value Awards recognizes vehicles in 26 categories that are forecast to retain the highest percentage of MSRP value after three years. This year's winners were chosen among 2016 models.

Land Rover was named overall brand winner for the Premium segment, while Subaru won for the Mainstream brand segment. Other winning models within the 26 categories include the Audi A7, Toyota Tacoma, Honda Pilot, Dodge Charger, and Mini Cooper. Read below for the full list of winners.

And if you're thinking about adding one of these vehicles to your garage, I recommend TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to help you get the lowest price in your local 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.
