AUDI A3 SPORTBACK
Demand outstripping supply for this more useful derivative. Premiums of £1,000 over three-door.
A modern classic – even seven-year-old examples fetch up to 50% of original cost new. Spider convertible especially popular.
For small cars such as Nissan Micra and Toyota Yaris, examples with automatic transmission are relatively rare, so demand is high.
Now easing in value to more realistic levels – need to be properly specced (sat-nav, leather, big wheels) to sell.
Despite what the pundits are saying, unlikely ever to be a popular colour again (a possible exception is some niche sports cars).
CARS WITHOUT AIR CON
Even in a poor English summer, cars without air conditioning are harder to shift.
