CAP has set the Nissan Cube’s residual value prediction at 45%, with the carmaker claiming its unique design is the key to its predicted performance.
Nissan’s UK managing director Paul Willcox said: “Depreciation is a crucial factor for any new car buyer to take into consideration before they choose their next new model.
“While one car might appear to be cheaper, once you have factored in what you are likely to get back when you come to sell, it might not look like such a bargain. The Cube is a quality product and every one will be in demand for many years after it leaves the showroom.”
The Cube has a simple line-up with prices starting at £14,000 for the 1.6-litre manual model. The 108bhp petrol engine offers 42.8mpg with emissions from 151g/km. A 1.5-litre diesel model will join the range in May.
