Edmunds named its Best Retained Value Awardees for this year, which included Toyota and Lexus.
Toyota and Lexus bagged the brand-level honors in the standard and luxury categories, respectively, with the highest aggregate retained value scores in their class.
“With record-high numbers of vehicles coming off lease in 2019, and both prices and interest rates inching higher, understanding a vehicle's retained value can play a huge role in how much a shopper can afford when looking for a new vehicle,” said Matt Jones, senior consumer advice editor at Edmunds.
“Savvy shoppers know that vehicles on the Edmunds Best Retained Value list are likely to hold their value down the road, which is key to getting a reasonable lease payment or a good trade-in price.”
Model-level awardees were Honda 2019 Accord (Midsize Car), Honda 2019 Odyssey (Minivan), 2019 Dodge Charger (Large Car), 2019 Jeep Wrangler (Midsize SUV), 2019 Ford Transit Van (Van), Toyota 2019 Sequoia (Large SUV), Toyota 2019 Tundra (Large Truck), Toyota 2019 Tacoma (Midsize Truck), and Subaru’s 2019 Impreza (Compact Car), the 2019 Crosstrek (Compact SUV), and the 2019 WRX (Sports Car).
Lexus led the luxury automakers, with its three vehicles winning model-level honorees: the 2019 NX 300 (Luxury Compact SUV), the 2019 ES 350 (Luxury Midsize Car), and the 2019 GX 460 (Luxury Midsize SUV). Other winners for this category were the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class (Luxury Compact Car), the 2019 Audi A7 (Luxury Large Car), the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover (Luxury Large SUV), and the 2019 Porsche 911 (Luxury Sports Car).
