Cars That Lose Their Value the Quickest

Michael B. Sauter

Methodology: 

24/7 Wall St. listed the 20 models with the largest average value depreciation between 2014 and 2019. This list came from used car listing website iSeeCars.com. iSeeCars differentiated some models by body type — for example, the Porsche 911 convertible and the Porsche 911 coupe. To avoid repetition, we only list the body type of the model with the smallest depreciation after five years. 

iSeeCars.com analyzed nearly 7 million 2014 model year cars sold in 2014, and over 800,000 used cars from the same model year sold between January and October 2019. New car prices from 2014 were inflation-adjusted to 2019 dollars, based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Low-volume vehicles, heavy-duty trucks and vans, and models no longer in production as of the 2019 model year were removed from further analysis.
