ALG Names Residual Value Awards

By Staff Writer November 19, 2020

ALG, the analytics subsidiary of TrueCar Inc., announced the winners of the 2021 Residual Value Awards (RVA), ranking Subaru and Lexus as the top Mainstream Brand and Premium Brand, respectively.

The prestigious ALG Residual Value Awards recognize vehicles in 29 segments that are projected to hold the highest percentage of their manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) after a three-year period, an important consideration for car buyers when assessing the total cost of ownership for a particular vehicle. This year’s recipients were chosen from all 2021 model year vehicles on sale in the United States in the premium and mainstream segments.

“Residual values are a key indicator of an automaker’s success and really help determine the overall health of a brand or certain model,” said Eric Lyman, chief industry analyst at ALG, a subsidiary of TrueCar.

For the first time this year, ALG introduces the Micro Utility category and Premium Electric category. Mazda took top honors in the Micro Utility category with the Mazda CX-3 and Tesla Model Y took top honors in the Premium Electric category.
