E in The Land Rover model is the most stable car in summer 2019: According to an analysis by Bähr & Fess Forecasts GmbH, the Range Rover Evoque D150 is still worth 61 percent of its new price after four years. He not only beats cars like the Porsche Macan and Audi Q3 35 TFSI in its class, but surprisingly also car icons in other segments such as the Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabrio, the mini models in their various forms and also every Daimler and VW.
Hardly any diesel among the most stable cars
The Evoque is not only a unicorn in the residual value statistics due to its brand origin. In addition to the Mercedes G 350 d, it is also the only diesel to win its category. Of the 42 models that take the first three places in 14 categories, only six are powered by a diesel engine. That looked different before the diesel scandal and the heated debate about the drive system including the first driving bans.
Here are the results in an overview:
With the electric cars it shows that Tesla is still in his own world is on the move. After four years, the Model 3 is still worth 54 percent of its new price, while the Opel Ampera-e in second place is only 43.5 percent. Even the third-placed BMW i3 (43 percent) has to leave a large gap to the Tesla. Overall, however, the predicted depreciation of electric cars is greater than that of common combustion models.
Exotic and cheap home-made cars at the top
If you look at the absolute depreciation in euros, the picture is different . Cars such as the Opel Insignia, Dacia Sandero and Hyundai Santa Fe are ahead in their segments. There are also exotic models such as the Toyota Camry, Cadillac CT6 or Nissan 370Z. The detailed results look like this:
However, this statistic should be treated with caution as it clearly seems to favor the respective special offers. Take Tesla 3, for example: The car that is clearly ahead in terms of percentage residual value is no longer in the top 3 at all. Instead, with the Renault Zoe, Citroën C-Zero and Peugeot Ion, a trio that now costs less than half. Or in the middle class: The percentage winner Audi A5 Sportback is thrown out, but the Opel Insignia, which is more than 12,000 euros cheaper in the new price, moves up. It is therefore not surprising that the Dacia Sandero, as the cheapest new car in Germany, also has the smallest absolute loss in value.
