ALG has released its winners in the 2020 Canadian Residual Value Awards, naming Toyota and Porsche among the top brands in the country when it comes to their resale.The Canadian Residual Value Awards evaluate vehicles for the 2020 model year, and the winner is chosen based on the vehicle most likely to retain a high percentage of its MSRP after four years, for mainstream vehicles; or after three years for premium vehicles.Twenty-seven different vehicle segments are evaluated. “Residual values are important to both automotive brands and consumers alike,” said ALG senior manager of industry solutions, Michelle MacDonald.“For automotive brands, a strong residual value is a barometer of a brand’s overall health and appeal in the marketplace,” he explained. “For consumers, since a vehicle’s depreciation is the single costliest aspect of car ownership, a strong residual value is an indicator of how well that vehicle will hold its value for future resale consideration.” RELATED The most – and least – reliable brands for 2019, ranked by Consumer Reports These are J.D.
