Depreciation Categories

  • Low - cars in this category generally retain their value exceptionally well, usually retaining 70% of their value against list price after twelve months.
  • Moderate – many of the manufacturers of the so called prestige cars (Mercedes, BMW, Jaguar) are in this category and represent good value for PCP’s and leasing. Generally retain around 45% of their value against list price after 3 years.
  • Average - this is by far the largest category and accounts for bulk of cars both in production and no longer in production. We recommend this category is used as a default if you cannot find your model or are unsure. The residual value of cars in this category is around 38% of their list price after 3 years.
  • High - this category often offers great value on the second hand market and includes some high-end expensive cars from the stables of Audi, Jaguar and Maserati so don’t be concerned that high depreciating cars are in some ways inherently inferior. Car reviews tell a different story – there are some excellent cars in this category.
