Top 10: Britain's worst depreciating cars.
Number 6: Vauxhall Vectra
6: Vauxhall Vectra: 17.8% - High volume cars bought in huge numbers by fleets and other commercial buyers are always in danger of epic depreciation, especially when the trade knows there’s something much better around the corner. And the Insignia’s gain is the Vectra’s pain, the big Vauxhall feeling the pinch as its more glamorous successor comes on stream.
Crazy deals on new and nearly-new Vectras mean you can now get a delivery mileage car for under 10 grand, with predictable effects on used values. Glass’s reckons a retained value of just 17.8% after three years but given the state of the market you’d have to say that was an optimistic assessment.
