Glass’s Guide have revealed the cars least likely to lose value – with the funky Fiat 500 topping the petrol car bill (read our review here: http://issuu.com/roadonlinemagazine/docs/road_24s), followed rather surprisingly by the brilliant, although niche Focus RS along with the enormous Audi Q7. The top diesels were the excellent Toyota Land Cruiser (also the overall winner, read our review here: http://issuu.com/roadonlinemagazine/docs/road_14), perfect Skoda Yeti (read our piece here: http://issuu.com/roadonlinemagazine/docs/road_26_small) along with another Audi, the Q5. Skoda also got the Octavia into the top several, along with Toyota a second Land Cruiser, so bravo to them, along with to Suzuki for their bargain Jimmy getting in there. Glass’s say: “the item’s a well-known fact of which the minute you drive a fresh car off the forecourt, the item loses a big chunk of its value – along with then quite a lot more in subsequent years. although not all cars are equal when the item comes to holding their value. So by planning ahead along with choosing the right design, prospective buyers can save themselves a fortune.” along with Adrian Rushmore, Glass’s Managing Editor adds: “Most motorists do all they can to ensure of which when they buy a fresh car, they get the best cost possible. However what most don’t think about, along with perhaps even realise, can be of which when they are looking to sell a few years down the line, they could get far more – in some cases thousands of pounds – by picking a design which will retain its value well. the item’s not unusual for a car to lose well over half its value in three years, although the top types such as the Land Cruiser can hold on to four-fifths of their value, which actually makes a difference. My advice can be to do your homework along with reap the benefits a few years down the line.”
