KBB Best Resale Value Awards

Ok, so you’re all excited about your new car purchase. You’ve lined up a great price on a car you like, but are getting the best deal over the long term? What will your car be worth when you sell it?

Everyone wants to get a great price on their new car, and at AutoBuying101.com we are always looking to help you get the best deal, but we also want to educate you about all the costs associated with car ownership, and a big one is resale value.

You may have saved a few hundred bucks over a comparable vehicle when you bought, but if that comparable vehicle is worth a thousand bucks more when you go to sell it five years later, who really got the better deal? We know it’s not always easy to think about the long-term when a good deal is staring you in the face, but there is money to be saved throughout the span of auto ownership, and resale value can often have a bigger financial impact than the purchase price.

With that in mind, we present the 2013 Kelley Blue Book Resale Value Awards. KBB has unleashed their team of expert automotive analysts and compiled the overall top 10 vehicles for best resale value, as well as the top resale vehicles by category, and the top resale value brands.

The top 10 vehicles (in alphabetical order):

Honda Civic

Honda CR-V

Jeep Wrangler

Lexus LX

Porsche Cayenne

Scion tC

Toyota FJ Cruiser

Toyota Land Cruiser

Toyota Tacoma

Toyota 4Runner

See something striking in that list? Six of the top 10 are Toyota brands (spoiler alert regarding the top brand awards).
