Volkswagen up! tops CAP league table for lowest depreciation

The data shows that depreciation over the last three years for the city car has averaged just £4,410 – less than half of the car’s original new price tag.

Runners up in the latest chart are the Kia Picanto, which lost an average of £4,665 since April 2012, and the Perodua Myvi, which depreciated over the last three years by an average £4,873.

The latest top ten depreciators chart measures the actual money lost by a vehicle, rather than percentage figures and is based on CAP’s Black Book Live.
