2015 Cars worth more than equivalent 2017 models

Post by NoDiscoSport » Fri Jan 26, 2018 12:11 pm

I recommended to a mate that if he wants to buy a used DS he should think seriously about going for one of the 2015 models with the Freelander engine. Then we had a look at how prices are holding up and found, to our surprise, that in some cases they are now fetching more than later cars. The example shown below proves the point but this is not unique.

SE Tech No. 1 was registered in Mar 2015, 14K miles - Ford 2.2L engine.
SE Tech No. 2 was registered in Jan 2017, 10K miles - JLR 2.0L engine.

Interesting indeed. For reasons you may recall I have been looking at car prices quite a bit recently, mainly nearly new. I've found that the retail price of cars which on the surface look very similar can vary quite dramatically. A quick and dirty way of getting an approximation of the trade value of any I'm interested in is to plug the registration number, if it is shown in the advert, into webuyanycar or similar. Only downside is that you keep getting pestered by emails from them.

It's just under a grand more and has the more powerful engine so assume this attracts a premium (or the dealer thinks it should). Would imagine the 180BHP SE Tech would be more again if it was listed.

I wouldn’t hold much steed in that. Pricing cars is a Black Art and in reality it’s the change price that matters. One dealer might give you a couple of thousand more, but charge more for their car, you know what I mean.

Car pricing is all over the shop at the moment. :roll:

Not helped by the government's misinformation on diesels and grouping Euro 6 diesels in the same bucket as every other diesel out there. Your average punter doesn't understand the difference; It's all diesel to them.

WBAC is generally a reasonable barometer, though, as is the CAP price if you have access to it.

You'd probably be able to buy either for £23k with good haggling , shows depreciation is rife at the moment .

There will be a lot of people who would not even know (or possibly care) which engine was in it, and be more interested in the colour and trim,
therefore easy prey to a clever "motor trader", Of course come end of warranty time it might prove to have been the wiser choice to have gone for the tried and tested OLD engine.

Obviously those with 2.2 engines and the David Icke’s of this world will want to believe their cars are worth more, but the plain truth is they aren’t.

How many times have you seen identical cars at different dealers with different price tags? Are some inflating the price to give you a better trade in price? There’s too many variables to draw a conclusion supporting the theory, but I know plenty of people who wouldn’t look at the 2.2 engines and only purchased when the 2.0 came out and common sense dictates the newer the car, the higher the price. Just my two penny worth.
