Used van prices ‘strong and stable’

NISSAN’S latest lines of vans are starting to hit the used market, three years after launch, and are doing well, figures show.

Prices are strong and stable, according to Manheim Auctions, and residual value experts CAP predict second hand values on a par with Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz.

The Nissan Primastar 2.7T SWB 100PS diesel will be worth £4,850 after three years /60,000 miles, 34% of its original price.

This compares well with the VW Transporter T26 SWB 85PS diesel at 35% (£4,725) and the Ford Transit 260 SWB 90PS diesel at 28% (£4,100). The Navara pick-up is also doing well, with a residual value of 47%.

Alex Wright, commercial vehicle sales director for Manheim, said: ‘While we are still only seeing a handful of used models coming back into the used market, they are generally performing well.’
