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

On average, expect to pay only 65% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 Beetle. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 18.65 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

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