Cars that depreciate the least in 5 years

AUTOBLOG STAFF

Choosing a car that holds its value is a smart economic decision

You know your brand-new car starts losing value the minute you drive it off the lot. And it loses more value with every passing minute. How quickly it depreciates depends on a number of factors, and not all vehicles depreciate at the same pace.

According to a recent study of more than 7.7 million new and used car sales by iSeeCars.com, the average vehicle loses just about half of its initial value after five years of ownership. Some cars and trucks depreciate much more quickly while others, like the ones you're about to see on this list, manage to retain a lot more of their value than average.

As iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly points out, “For consumers who purchase new vehicles and sell them after five years, choosing a car that holds its value is a smart economic decision.” Click on the image above to find out which cars and trucks depreciate the least in five years.


Number 10: Subaru WRX
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 40.0%

You're going to see several trucks and sport utility vehicles on this list, with a couple high-performance coupes mixed in to keep things interesting. What you won't see are any more sedans or hatchbacks like the Subaru WRX. And we're not terribly surprised. In a world crazed with crossovers of every shape and size, sedans and hatchbacks are a dying breed (see the loss of the dearly departed Mitsubishi Evolution series for further evidence). That's especially so of cars like the WRX that are aimed at driving enthusiasts, and that means they can command a premium on the used market.


Number 9: Nissan Frontier
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 39.5%

While we weren't surprised to see the Subaru WRX in 10th place, the Nissan Frontier in 9th initially left us scratching our heads. The Frontier isn't currently a competitive product, and it hasn't been for the last few years. But then we remembered that this list represents vehicles five years old, back when mid-size pickup production wasn't nearly as prolific as it is today. Couple that pent-up demand for right-sized trucks with what we have to imagine were comparatively reasonable retail prices back when these trucks were sold new and you have a recipe for solid resale value.


Number 8: Nissan GT-R
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 39.4%

There aren't a lot of vehicles in America like the Nissan GT-R. A technological tour de force when it was launched in the States for the 2008 model year, Godzilla earned its nickname with a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 sending 480 horsepower to all four wheels through a dual-clutch gearbox. The fact that it's still on sale today proves its enduring appeal.


Number 7: Honda Ridgeline
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 38.1%

The same qualities that make the Honda Ridgeline an intriguing alternative to traditional pickups make it an intriguing used vehicle purchase. Compared to its popular body-on-frame competitors — including two other mid-size pickups on this list — the Honda Ridgeline is a comfortable and efficient outlier that still has enough hauling and towing capability to fulfill the needs of the majority of truck buyers. The fact that it's so unique can't help but prop up its resale value.


Number 6: Porsche 911
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 37.2%

“The Porsche 911 is an iconic and beloved sports car that will always be in demand as a dream car for many consumers,” said Ly. We'd add that the 911's basic shape hasn't changed in decades, which means an example that's five years old still looks new.


Number 5: Toyota 4Runner
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 36.5%

Toyota enjoys a stellar and well-earned reputation for reliability. That's a big reason why three of the top five vehicles on this list of cars that depreciate the least wear Toyota badges. Unlike most of its crossover competitors, the 4Runner is a rough-and-tumble sport utility vehicle that durability and off-road capability over refinement and on-road manners. The fact that it stands out as different might be a benefit on the second-hand market.

“Since its release in 1984 the 4Runner has amassed a loyal following, and its ruggedness and reputation for being a reliable vehicle help contribute to its value retention,” said Ly.


Number 4: Toyota Tundra
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 35.9%


Each and every year, fullsize pickup trucks sit atop the sales charts here in the United States, led for as long as we can remember by the Ford F-Series. Interestingly, the Toyota Tundra is the only large truck to show up on this list. Credit Toyota's dependable reputation and the fact that it's sold in lower volumes than its American competitors with its strong fourth-place finish in the resale value rankings.


Number 3: Toyota Tacoma
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 32.0%

“Toyota and Honda are known for their reliability, and their reputation for dependable pickups helps aid their resale value,” said Ly. This is the third Toyota in a row, and it's the top-ranked mid-size truck for resale value.

Just half of a percentage point separates the third-place Tacoma from the SUV that sits in second. Click on the image above to see what's next.


Number 2: Jeep Wrangler
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 31.5%

No surprise here. “Jeep Wranglers are known for retaining their value for reasons including their ruggedness, durability, and iconic design,” said Ly. “Because of Jeep’s loyal following, their demand outstrips supply in the used car marketplace leading to high resale values.”

If you weren't surprised to see the Jeep Wrangler sitting so high on this list, you certainly won't be surprised by what comes next.


Number 1: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 30.0%


Jeep introduced the four-door Wrangler Unlimited model in 2006, having successfully tested the extended-wheelbase waters for two years with a two-door version based on the previous generation of the automaker's standard-setting off-roader. It was an immediate success, and its continued demand as a used vehicle earns it the title as the vehicle that retains more value after five years than any other in America.

Tacos have been known for being expensive in the used market.

You can expect the Wranglers to depreciate a lot more. The newest generation has been priced high and built in very high volumes. Dealers are now having trouble moving vehicles, and that often results in discounts that affect residual values.

Happy to see both of my cars made the list (#1 & #10). Glad I purchased my 2014 JKUR for $36k before Jeep went insane with their pricing. A similar 2019 was around $50k.

The source article breaks it out by cars, trucks, SUVs, EVs, hybrids, etc.
https://www.iseecars.com/cars-that-h...e-study#v=2019

The lowest depreciating EVs are on par with the highest depreciating sports cars at around 60-70% depreciation over 5 years. Ouch.

You got a Ridgeline? I'm scoping those out now. Seems like a nice, functional and cheap truck. Good resale is nice, not like I'll keep it long though.

I just traded in my ridgeline after only owning it for 18 months (so long wonderful truck). I put nothing down on the ridgeline. I was able to trade it in for a tiny bit more than I owed. They most certainly do hold their value. But when you switch cars as often as I do, you learn a few tricks on what to buy, when to buy and how to buy.

My wifes '13 FJ Cruiser was ~$35k new, can sell it for $28-29k today, with 60k on the odo. It's crazy how the value has been retained in this particular truck.

Yep. If looking, at least to me, the RTL AWD is the trim. People are nailing them for 31.7k + TTL right now. Honda has a non-published $2k incentive on them right now via corporate in the US. Dumb stealers, many won't even know, but it's there. Honda is also offering .9% up to 72 months. I got a killer deal on mine but got mine last month and that rate was not offered which kind of sucks as I like to nail the best deal for any given FMC/MMC. A lot of bang for the buck. Already modified the hell out of mine with full LED's for all lamps up front, wireless CarPlay, full audio replacement, app based alarm/remote start, tonneau, roof rails and a bunch of other bs. Now to hunt down a deal on a FX SVHO to trailer behind it over the winter.

People are getting RTL-E's for $35.6k, and BE's for $37-38k. Great time for a steal. 2020's will have the 9 spd (no thanks) and standard ADAS across all trims. They are removing several trims also. Now is the time if you want one for a killer price and killer interest rate. .9% for up to 72 months is incredible. Best of luck. The SH-AWD system is very similar to the RS. Rear half shafts torque vector, the real way, not brake based so it oversteers slightly around a bend. Handles better (pavement) than any truck on the road. The V6 is excellent paired with the 6 spd with optimal shift points. 2020 announcement should be soon as they start shipping at the end of the month. MMC.

I am enjoying a new 2020 Ascent right now. Almost bought the Outback XT as the new interior is quite nice looking, but for a few grand more the Ascent provides a metric ton of more room. Of course it weighs as much as the sun, but the ascent makes subaru number 10. I do miss the ridgeline though.. such a great truck.

We are adding another family member. Need the extra space the Ridgeline could not provide unfortunately. I tried to talk my wife into giving up her Legacy, but she loves it.

So it came down between the Ascent and the Pilot. Their is practically nothing between them in specs. The Subaru dealer who sold me my last three cars made me a great deal. So Subaru number 10 landed. So far so good.

OH here is our new family memeber


Wyatt a 10 week old Brittany Spaniel.

Great to see the WRX on the list. I’m still loving mine after nearly 5 years of ownership.

I saw a 2014 RS7 advertised for $50k the other day. Figured something must be wrong with it. Look it up and, nope... that's the going price for a 5 year old car that was $130k new. Blew my mind. $80k just gone...just because.

If a 5 year old RS7 was $130k new, how much will the RS6 avant be?
