When you buy your new suv, you’re surely going to notice how much the vehicle costs. But there’s another cost consideration, which will emerge when you sell the vehicle or if it’s ever abruptly totaled in a collision: resale value. This is also a key factor in determining your monthly payments if you opt to lease your vehicle.
It’s well-known that every vehicle loses substantial value as soon as you’ve bought it, but the pace of depreciation varies by model. Various factors keep some cars in high demand on the used market, including high perceived reliability or great similarities to the new vehicle still on sale. We’ve rounded up 10 SUVs that hold their value, based on data from various sources that try to divine what today’s new cars will be worth in a few years. These 10 vehicles represent an array of different SUV market classes, so you can find one that’s right for you; we’ve arranged them in approximate order of size and price, with smaller and more affordable models first.
