We all like the smell of a new car not to mention the other benefits — better insurance rates, very few or no mechanical issues. However, you know that each car will become an old one at some point and will depreciate. And not every car is good when it comes to reselling it. If you keep reselling in mind, then the worst car you can get is an electric or luxury car. And the best ones would be crossovers, SUVs and trucks. The industry average is 49.6% depreciation but that doesn’t mean that each car will hold this value. So, in this article, we’ve gathered the seven best SUVs and crossovers based on their resale value for the farseeing drivers who want not only to use the car but have a good deal reselling it later.
