Presenting: Top 40 best vehicles resale Value (updated 22/12/15)

PRESENTING: The top 40 best Vehicles Resale value (updated 22/12/2015)


NOTE: This is Private sale price.  This DOES NOT factor Trade in price.  For trade in price less 10% to 20% depending on car as used car dealers also need to make money.  

I NOW PRESENT my research on used car retained value after few years. It took me 3 months to gather and compile the used car prices from various sources of classifieds namely Motortrader, The Star Classifieds, www.Autoworld.com.my, and random visits to car dealerships/Recond car showrooms… 

Here are the vehicles shown with their Retained value in PERCENTAGE (%) within 3 years… (and 5 years/7 years in bracket). This is for Local (eg. Tan Chong) AND/OR Official Distributors (eg. Mercedes Benz Malaysia (MBM)) cars only. AP Imports to be covered later as their New car price were determined by AP Importer themselves, Ie. It varies, so I just estimated their new price to make this statistic possible, it’ll be unfair if I mix REAL results and estimated results together.

NEW for 2015.  7 years depreciation / retained value.

NOTE: Overall Toyota, VW and Proton experienced dropped in their resale value. Toyota because of New Generation Altis and Vios, hence used prices dropped.  No changes in Avanza, Fortuner and Innova (YAWN!). Also, the Camry's 1 step backwards. 

Proton case have themselves to blame due to launch of SV models.  VW's because of their Poor after-sales and DSG Issues.  Biggest winners are Honda.  All Honda models have improvements in their Resale Value.

In fact, Honda Civic FD2R Type-R hardly depreciates.  7 years still holds 75% retained value.

(Caused by new Proton SV Price Slashing, hence RV affected)


 OTHERS (Selected) - (5 yrs retained value in bracket)


- BMW 3-series Coupe [63%/(53%)] and BMW 325i CKD 55%/(45%) = Avg: 59% (49%) 
- BMW 5 series 55% (45%)
- Chevrolet CRUZE 50% (35%) 
- Proton Saga BLM 55%/45%/41% {60% / (50%) }
(Caused by Proton Saga SV, price slashing, affects RV)
- Peugeot 308 VTI/TURBO 50% / (40%/32%)
- Peugeot 508 1.6 THP  58% /48/38%
- Peugeot 3008 50%/40%/30%
- Peugeot 5008 57%/42%/30%
[NEW] Peugeot 408 1.6 THP 59% / 49% / 37%

Note: 
1) Persona, Saga BLM and ALL OTHER PROTONS = RM3,000 per year depreciation 3rd year onwards until 10th year, After 10 years 5 to 10% depreciation each year only (depending on condition and mileage).  So it's GOOD to buy Say a 1997 Wira 1.6 for 6,000 as it STOPPED Depreciation).  Last 4 years also costs RM6000.

3) Peugeot 308VTI / 308 Turbo / 508 / 3008/ 5008 Updated

AP/Grey Imports (TOP 10 best resale value vehicles):

Again, I can’t determined the Actual new car prices of these cars as it’s Determined by the AP Holders/Grey importers. But I found that it’s safe to say for example Toyota Alphard 2.4’s New car price: RM280,000 with 5% +/- allowance depending on specs (ie. RM266k to RM294k), hence I used this as my estimation to come up with the percentage (%) of retained value results in 3 years (5 years in brackets).

1) Mini Cooper/S/Clubman 75%/65/55%
2) Mitsubishi EVO       73%/(63%/57%)
3) Honda Odyssey 70% (65%/55%)
4) VW Beetle 2.0 70% (64%)/50%
5) Toyota Wish: 70% (60%)/52%
5) Toyota Mark X 70% (60%)/52%
5) Subaru WRX STI Ver 8 70% (60%)
8) Toyota Harrier 2.4 67% (55%/49%) 
9) Mazda RX8 and MX5 65% (57%)/50%
10) Toyota Estima 63% (59% for a recond 5yrs old)/47% (for used 7 years old)
10) Toyota Alphard 63% (59% for recond 5 yrs old)/47% (for used 7 years old)

THAT’S ALL FOLKS! Hope this STATISTICS will be helpful for you in shopping for your ideal used cars… Again, it took me 3 months to come up with these statistics… You should thank me for it…
