Buying A New Car? Here Are Some Cars To Consider
January 10th 2008
Consider this; You are spending a good amount of money on a car in which in a sense, is an investment to you, if you went to sell your car later down the road, wouldn’t you want to get the most for the car you took perfect car of? However sadly, you may not get what you bargained for due to the fact that once you drive a brand new car off the lot it starts to lose its value to depreciation.
Here are the top 10 cars and the percentage of its original value that each vehicle is likely to retain after five years with an annual mileage of 15,000.
- Honda S2000 — 51.7%
- Mini Cooper — 51.5%
- Acura TSX — 47.7%
- BMW M3 — 47.6%
- Mercedes-Benz SL-Class — 47.0%
- Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG — 47.0%
- Infiniti G35 — 46.9%
- Acura RSX — 46.5%
- Lexus SC 430 — 46.5%
- Subaru Impreza WRX STI — 46.4%
So consider the depreciation factor and how much you are going to spend on a car. It might just be worth spending a little extra so when you need to sell your car you can get a good amount back on your “investment”. I hope this helps, again I will be posting more about cars as well in the future
