4x4 prices rise as snow falls

For many motorists, particularly those living in rural or remote areas, a 4x4 is fast becoming a necessity in winter rather than a luxury. 

BCA’s Tim Naylor comments: “As the temperature drops, we have seen 4x4 values rise quite sharply. Values for some models climbed by around 5% in November, compared to similar vehicles bought in the previous month.”

“However, even accounting for the rising prices following the early onset of winter, buyers should still be able to find a good deal on a 4x4 at auction.”

BCA advises for potential buyers to opt for the best specification they can find within their set budget, particularly on large 4x4s as this will help the vehicle maintain its value in the years ahead.

“Nothing makes a four-wheel drive more attractive than a dusting of snow” concluded Tim Naylor. “And the last few days weather has certainly stirred interest in 4x4s.”
