Going up - going down

USED value experts give the lowdown on what’s selling and what’s sitting.

Going up


After a period of plummeting values related to high used volumes, both petrol and diesel Picasso have begun to strengthen again, despite being around in high numbers.


Now replaced by an all new S40 and V50 the old models around are enjoying a buoyant period if they are up to three years old, while the well equipped late-plate Classics are also finding homes with ease.


Late-plate ‘Definitive Edition’ examples of the old Discovery with the Td5 engine have become sought after. All the final editions are well equipped and offer seats for seven.

    Going down


    Unlike most MPVs the Multipla is bucking the trend with petrol values holding steady this month and diesel coming under pressure.

    BMW 5-series 1996-2003

    The older 5-series is beginning to look its age and buyers don’t seem to have much of an appetite for anything other than the 520i with automatic transmission.


    This surprisingly competent little car has appeared previously in the ‘hot’ column but recently values have come under pressure as volumes increase. Expect the Daewoo to become less desirable when the brand is replaced with Chevrolet in the new year.
