PRESENTING: The top 31 best Vehicles resale value… (UPDATED 7 September 2010)

PRESENTING: The top 31 best Vehicles resale value… (UPDATED: 7 September 2010) 

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 in bracket). This is for Local (eg. Tan Chong) AND/OR Official Distributors (eg. Auto Bavaria) 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.

1) Mini One/Cooper: 84% (72%)
2) VW GOLF GTI 80%/(70%)
3) Honda Civic 1.8 IVTEC/2.0IVTEC 80%/75% (70%/65%)
4) Toyota Avanza: 78% (66%)
5) Perodua MYVI 1.3 SX/EZ: 76%/75%/ (66%/65%)
6) Toyota Vios: 75% (65%)
7)Toyota Camry 2.0/2.4 VVTI 75%/74% (55% => Old model)
8) Honda Jazz 1.5 IDSI/VTEC 74%/72% (66%)

10) Mitsubishi Lancer GT 74%/(60%)
12) Suzuki Swift 1.5 73% / (63%)
13) Toyota Hilux 2.5D4D 73% / (58%)
13) Proton Saga BLM M-line 73%/(NA)
15) Toyota Altis 72% (60%)
16) Nissan C22 Vannete 71% (63%)
17) Honda Stream 70% (55%)
18) Honda CRV 70% (54%)
18) Mazda 6 2.5 (2.0) 70% (54%)
20) Mazda 5 (Premacy): 70% (52%)
21) Mercedes C200K 69% (57%)
22) Nissan Frontier 68% / (56%)
23) Proton Persona 1.6 Hi-line 68%/(54%)
24) Honda Accord 2.0/2.4/3.5 72%/69%/60% => Average 67%. (60%/54%/46% => Average 53%)

25) Nissan Sentra 67% (51%)
26) Perodua Kenari 66% (57%)
27) Nissan Serena 65% (63% - old model)
28) Perodua Kelisa 65% (50%)

30) Mitsubishi Airtrek Turbo 63% (55%)
31) BMW M3/330i Coupe (69%) &
BMW 325i CKD (55%) = Avg: 61% (49%)

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

- Chevrolet Optra 50% (35%)
- Proton Satria GTI: -NA- (60%)
- Proton Wira: 1.3/1.5: 58% (53%), Wira 1.6 -NA- (50%)
- Waja 1.6X: 56% (50%). [74% retained value - 1st year).

Note: Wira and Waja = RM3,000 per year depreciation 3rd year onwards).


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) Mitsubishi EVO 9 (8/7.5) -NA- 73%/(63%)
2) Honda Odyssey 70% (65%)
3) VW Beetle 2.0 70% (64%)
4) Toyota Wish: 70% (NA)
5) Toyota Altezza -NA- (60%)
6) Toyota Harrier 2.4 67% (55%)
7) Subaru WRX STI Ver 8 66% (59%)
8) Mazda RX8 65% (57%)
9) Toyota Estima 63% (51%)
10) Toyota Alphard 61% (59% for recond 5 yrs 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…

NOTE: 11 October 2012, Proton Saga BLM revised, Persona revised, VW Golf GTI and Mitsubishi Lancer GT Added, Mazda  6 2.5 and  Mazda 5 added.

great compilation. can you do an updated list for 2013? seems that RV have dropped significantly since the announcement of the lower car prices by the govt. For e.g., dealers are taking in a well maintained 3 yr Golf GTI at ard 145k only.
