Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
One unavoidable fact about buying a new car is that it'll lose some of its value as soon as you drive it off the forecourt.
With that in mind, have you ever wondered which car would be the best to buy to ensure you don't lose too much money when you try to sell it on in a few years? Well, we have, so we made this video!
We've pulled together a list of the 25 best cars for holding their value from each manufacturer based on them having done 24,000 miles three years after they were purchased. The question is, can you guess which manufacturer will come out on top? Let us know in the comments!

    The fact that UK financing is only 3 years and US financing is usually 5 years, and lately with increased prices is more commonly 6 years, really explains why there are more expensive cars sold in the US than the UK.

    Too many people change their cars after 3-4 years in this day and age! Its lead to an almost disposable build quality for some brands. How about a video of models sold in 2010-2012 and, how they fare today!? I have a 03 yaris as my run around. It's in its 19th year and I can say with some certainty that a new yaris today, wont be alive in 2040! Also, a video on cult cars that have held or went up in value over the last 25yrs would be interesting. Alfa 147/156 GTAs, Golf R32s, BMW E46s, etc

    Just don’t add £15k of options to your Macan to get it to a ‘decent’ spec. I learnt that one the hard way! Better off buying the GTS where the spec is baked into the model variant and so residual value is better versus options being written down to 0 pretty much immediately.

    Your comparison is not so good because you did not take in consideration the offer of each car , offer that the market gives. When the market has 10 used cars for sale, is normal that the price holds very well.

    The car industry has gone nut's the last 15year's, massively overpriced to buy and loose a huge chunk in value the moment it's purchased. Look at the bmw comp spec, get a slightly tweeked map n sus setup for an extra 10/15grand. Matt get Joe, Yianni, and the rest, £5,000 limit best car you can get your hands on then have a shoot out to see which is the best value for money.

    Do need to completely disagree with these statistics. Firstly the most exciting car ford makes is the GT, Secondly only 765 McLaren's will be made 🤔 more like 120k worth of appreciation. Rare supercars dont depreciate Carwow. In fact buying on of these cars and selling shortly after is one of the easiest ways of making money. Rare like Senna, Chiron, La Ferrari, 918, Chiron. These cars appreciate. Cap guide uses live auction Data BTW. A Nissan GTR would cap at 16k but in the real world it's worth 30k Plus in any Market.
