When buying a new or used car its always good to recognize what the resale value is before you take the plunge. To aid in your car buying experience we have included the annual list of the cars with the best resale value according to Kelley Blue Book .
The list of 2013 models is controlled by trucks and SUVs from Japanese automakers Honda (NYSE:HMC) and Toyota. As a matter of fact, only two cars, the Honda Civic and Toyota’s Scion tC, made this year’s list. Toyota was able to rule the chart with six vehicles in the top 10.
One model from Chrysler, now owned by Italy’s Fiat – the Jeep Wrangler — is the only vehicle from an American brand on the list. Volkswagen‘s Porsche also produced one vehicle on the list.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the average car holds only 38% of its selling price at the end of five years.
