  • % Decline - Total percentage of decline.
  • % Paid - Percentage of the original price paid for that model year grouped by the same trim levels.
  • % Left - Percentage left of reliable years with relatively predictable costs of the vehicle.
  • Years Left - Current industry average of years remaining with predictable maintenance and repair costs.
  • Net Used Value ® - Our ranking & sorting index to help you find the model years with the most value.

The 2017, 2016 & 2015 Volkswagen model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 67% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 Volkswagen. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 15.95 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2015 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
