The cars that depreciate more and less

The website for online car pricing Valorarmicoche.com has produced a study determining how much they devalued cars of each brand in recent years when sold on the second hand market.

To do this, they have left a 'population' of 182,515 vehicles, which have taken a sample 37962 what, between 2012 and 2015, They have traveled a annual average of 30,000 km. There have been studied 977 models, all of them with an age of four years and around 120,000 km traveled.

Although there are brands that do not appear because the site did not have enough vehicles to obtain representative data, one thing is clear: Opel and Citroen are the brands depreciate more. The new acquisition of PSA reported a greater devaluation than any other brand in 2013. Citroën happened to him exactly the same in the next two years, 2014 and 2015. Alfa Romeo also tends to depreciation, in 2013 and 2014 being the fourth most depreciated firm, and the third in 2015.

On the other side of the coin we find Land Rover, which was the lower depreciation recorded in 2012 and 2013, and Dacia, by 2015 it achieved the same merit as British firm. It was also the fourth less value lost in the previous two years. Mercedes Benz was placed 2014 and 2015 in the second position the ranking of less value lost. In those two years Audi was first and third, respectively, recording a very good behavior. Mini and Honda are two brands that have strength in this aspect, obtaining the second position in the table in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

The study can appreciate the influence of the economic crisis in the loss of value of cars. It is observed that if, in the worst years of economic weakness cars lost value generally rapidly as the economy was recovering this depreciation began to hold back.
