Edmunds Names Brands with Best Retained Value Featured

By Staff Writer April 10, 2019 234

Edmunds announced its 2019 Best Retained Value Awards, recognizing the new 2019 vehicles and brands with the highest projected residual values after five years.


Toyota and Lexus took home brand-level honors in the standard and luxury categories, respectively, with the highest aggregate retained value scores in their class. 


For model-level awards, both Toyota and Subaru claimed three wins, with Honda taking home two.


Among luxury automakers, Lexus led the pack with three vehicles winning model-level awards. No other firm won more than one.


The 2019 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards are determined based on the qualifying new models that have the highest projected private-party residual value five years after their launch, expressed as a percentage of their initial True Market Value. To be considered for a model-level award, a vehicle must be a 2019 model year that launched on or before Dec. 31, 2018, and have sales in January 2019 that are not less than 25 percent of the average aggregate sales in that month for all of the other models in its award segment.


To be eligible to win a brand-level award, an automaker must have eligible vehicles competing in at least four of the 18 award segments.
