BACKGROUND: Although this car is seven years old, it holds its value very well and whether you sell them in the winter or summer, they generate lots of bids. Realising over £4,500, when the car was only around £12,000 new is an excellent example of a car holding its value well. Silver is a good colour that doesn’t show any minor bumps or dents.

What it’s worth

IF your car is leased or outright purchased, knowing its value is vital, particularly if you want to offer staff the chance to buy the vehicle at the end of the contract. Use our weekly guide to benchmark prices.
