The slowest depreciating cars of 2017

Corner Park Garages, Swansea and Cardiff

September 28, 2017 at 2:43 PM

A car isn't just a way to get from A to B, or to show of your cornering skills to your friends; a car can also be an investment. A lot of cars depreciate quickly after purchase, but choosing the right one can give you an asset that holds its value for a long time. Here we list the slowest depreciating cars currently available. Be warned: some of these are a bit pricey. 

Land Rover Range Rover



The humble Range Rover holds its value very well. SUVs are generally quite slow at depreciating, and the Range Rover is the best, retaining 65% of its value after three years. This car is functional, fast and luxurious which puts it in high demand. Best not to opt for a high end version as these depreciate faster. You can pick up the most recent Range Rover used for around £60k. 

Porsche 911



Most sports cars depreciate at an alarming rate, but the Porsche 911 manages to hold its own, achieving 68% value retention after three years. All of Porsche's models have a tendency to hold their value well. Higher end versions like the 911 GT3 RS are in the highest demand and can command a hefty price at auction. Used 911s are available for £15-20k. 

Audi A1



Audi's smallest model is also its most in demand, especially the more high spec versions. This is the most affordable of the cars listed here. The A1 retains 62% of its value after three years. For a used Audi A1 you should be expecting about £10k. 

Lamborghini Aventador



This one is probably out of reach for most readers, but there's no problem having aspirations. The wait for a new Aventador is long, and so prices are kept high on the used models, which retain 70% of their value after three years. You'll need to have between £300k and £400k stashed away in order to invest in this asset. 

Mercedes GLA



This Mercedes SUV may not be one of the best reviewed cars out there, but it's still a Mercedes which means the badge carries a high degree of desirability. The GLA keeps 63% of its value on average after three years and can be bought used for around £20k. 

Lexus NX



Another sporty, luxury SUV, this one doesn't quite live up to the standard of the Range Rover, keeping 57% of its value after three years. The hybrid engine is unusual for this kind of car and is likely to keep it in demand amongst the eco-concious for some time yet. You can buy a used one for £30k. 

Ferrari 458



Another one that will likely exceed the purchasing capabilities of most readers, this Italian supercar is the slowest depreciating model on the list, retaining an extremely impressive 94% of its value after three years. Ferrari picks its initial buyers carefully so as to discourage quick resale and keep the price up. You can pick one up used for £150k.
