MINI retains residual value crown

The MINI has once again come out on top of a residual value survey.

EurotaxGlass’s figures show that a three-year-old MINI, having covered 39,000 miles, will be worth 71% of its cost new – outperforming more specialist niche models such as the Mercedes-Benz SLK, Porsche 911 and Aston Martin DB9.

The Citroën C5 is the heaviest depreciator, with the V6 petrol version retaining just 17.5% of its cost new after three years.
