Cars with the best hold value
Toyota tops the list
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – It's something to consider whenever you buy a car, what's the resale value going to be years down the road? The car research site Edmunds-dot-com just released its 2012 winners of Best Retained Value awards.
Here are the top picks:
The 2012 Toyota Tacoma takes the number one spot - because it's expected to hold more than 57-percent of its value after five years.
Coming in at number two and three - the Honda CRV and Civic. The CRV is expected to hold 54-percent of its value, the Civic expected to hold 50-percent.
Coming in at number four - the Mini Cooper. The 2012 model may give you nearly 49-percent of its original value.
Rounding out the top of the list is he Ford F-350 Super Duty at 48-point-6 percent, and the Ford Shelby GT-500 at 47-point-5 percent.
Researchers say they were surprised that did so well. Edmunds also looked at hybrids. It found the Honda Civic Hybrid, not the Toyota Prius, held its value better over time.
