Dealers bid particularly strongly for the 'old shape' Accords, with examples consistently selling for well above guide values. 98R 2.0i SE four-door models averaged £11,200 or 115% of CAP Clean at 14,000 miles, while 98R 1.8i four-door models achieved an average value of £8,950 or 105% of CAP Clean at 14,500 miles.
New Accord continued to perform strongly, with 98S registered 1.8i S models selling for an average £13,025 or 89% of current list at 5,000 miles and the 2.0i LS models averaging £13,725 or 83.5% of cost new at around 4,800 miles. The HR-V three-door 1.6i M model continued to perform well following on from its used market launch last month, with 99S examples achieving £12,000 equivalent to 86.5% of list price.
Overall the sale achieved 103.27% of CAP Clean, equivalent to 72.1% of cost new across the entire range of Hondas on offer. Alan Gupwell, sales manager manufacturers for BCA, said: 'The Honda sales programme is consistently recording excellent results in the auction hall, underlining the desirability of the product and reflecting the strong retail demand for the Honda range.'
