VOLKSWAGEN seems to be the brand of choice in the Gumtree Pre-Owned Vehicle Awards for 2018 as they feature the most finalists out of the 11 categories in which brands will compete.

Volkswagen has nine finalists, based on the retained value of 2016 models with at least six months of value depreciation, according to data provided by TransUnion Auto Information Services.

The 55 finalists have been selected with the top five vehicles that have the most favourable depreciation in each of the 11 categories qualifying for further evaluation.


The car model with the best value retention, irrespective of category, is the Mazda CX3 2.0 Individual at 91.34%.

This model is also the most dominant in its class of Best Cross-Overs under R325 000, based on the margin to second best value retention per category and stands at 3.27%.
