When buying a used car it’s often wise to consider the model’s depreciation. The faster the depreciation, the less money you will likely get if you come to sell it in the future.
If you are in the market for a used minivan, here are some options that will retain their value if you are looking to re-sell after using.
Ford have always been known for keeping their value and they have some great minivans on the used market.
There is the reliable Ford Grand C-MAX through AA Cars. With 5 doors, automatic gearbox, Bluetooth connection and USB port it’s a great minivan for long family drives with plenty of space and entertainment for the whole family.
If you are looking something larger there is always the Ford Galaxy or the Ford Kuga is a great alternative to the C-MAX.
Another brand that retains its value for re-sale is Volkswagen. Known for their incredible engineering and great drive quality, Volkswagen are a great option when looking for a used car.
Ranging from around £7,000-£20,000 depending on their age, the Volkswagen Sharan is a great minivan to consider. With impeccable safety records and a timeless design, the Sharan is a great family minivan. There are 5 and 7 seat options and lots of room for loved ones.
For something a bit smaller but still plenty of room for 5 people there is the Touran, or if you are looking for a minivan to use for a business, the Transporter is a favorite amongst taxi drivers.
If you want a bit more luxury for your money, then Audi has one of the best resale percentages on the market today.
The Audi Q3 and Q5 are great models for both driving with the family and going on a solo drive. Audi are known for their great driving experience and the Q range is no different. With plenty of room to fit 5 people comfortably and automatic options the Q3 and Q5 really are a pleasure to drive.
So if you are looking for a minivan you can get a good price for after you are done with it, Ford, Volkswagen and Audi are great models to consider to get a good price when re-selling.
