Used cars with the best Resale values in UAE

Car Resale Value UAE


Nobody buys a car expecting to keep it forever, especially in the UAE where people move regularly. From the moment you buy a new vehicle and start to drive it, it begins depreciating in value. The depreciation of used cars in the UAE is therefore an important consideration when choosing a car.


A lot of people forget that the real cost of a car is not what you pay for it when you first buy it. It’s what you lose when you sell it. Look at the example below:


>> Daihatsu Sirion vs. Mercedes C200 <<


Daihatsu Sirion
Buy 40,000 AED
Sell 25,000 AED (after 1 year)
Cost = 15,000 AED (for 1 year)


Mercedes C200
Buy 100,000 AED
Sell 89,000 AED (after 1 year)
Cost = 11,000 AED (for 1 year)


>> Cheaper car = Mercerdes C200 <<


If you buy a Daihatsu Sirion for 40,000 AED and sell it for 25,000 AED after 1 year, the Sirion effectively cost you 15,000 AED to drive for the year. If you buy a Mercedes C200 for 100 AED and sell it a year later for 89 AED, that car cost you 11 AED to drive. In this case, the Mercedes C200 is actually CHEAPER than the Sirion.


With that in mind, here is a list of the cars that have the best resale value in the UAE:
