Choosing a car that holds its value is a smart economic decision

You know your brand-new car starts losing value the minute you drive it off the lot. And it loses more value with every passing minute. How quickly it depreciates depends on a number of factors, and not all vehicles depreciate at the same pace.

According to a recent study of more than 7.7 million new and used car sales by iSeeCars.com, the average vehicle loses just about half of its initial value after five years of ownership. Some cars and trucks depreciate much more quickly while others, like the ones you're about to see on this list, manage to retain a lot more of their value than average.

As iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly points out, “For consumers who purchase new vehicles and sell them after five years, choosing a car that holds its value is a smart economic decision.” Click on the image above to find out which cars and trucks depreciate the least in five years.
