These are the Top 15 Cars that Cost More Used than New

Clearly, some vehicles are not worth buying used over new


  • The Mercedes-AMG G-Class sells for about 35% used compared to what it cost new.

  • On average, according to the study, a one-year-old used car costs 1.3% more than its new version.


Not that long ago, buying a pre-owned gently-used vehicle was a sound and reasonable purchase. The last few years have all but completely flipped the scenario on its ear. The pandemic and subsequent part shortages and supply issues have created a market where demand has outstripped inventories. This pent-up demand has pushed some used car values beyond that what they retailed for when new.
