For those of you who are SUV fans, this article is for you. Choosing one of the best SUVs in South Africa means you will have a lot of satisfaction and peace of mind. In addition to this, don’t forget the advantage that comes with the resale value of a vehicle. The following SUVs are those that can boast some of the best resale values.
Worldwide, SUVs are selling at a fantastic rate. The same applies in the auction setting in South Africa.
A list is shown below of the top used SUVs in South Africa in 2019, that were registered between 2015 and 2018. An auctioneer collected data on all of their auctioned vehicles and, in the survey, discovered those SUVs with the best resale value. The percentage shown on these vehicles is the percentage of the original selling price that was obtained after the auction.
This compact SUV has always been a hot favourite in South Africa, and thus achieves an excellent resale value. A highlight is its advanced information system.
This elegant but small SUV is great to drive and ideal for a family. The auctioneer believes that the introduction of the CX-3 to South Africa has helped the brand’s reputation enormously. The brand was developed when Mazda Southern Africa began in October 2014. Mazda’s Lifetime Parts Warranty has also helped boost its popularity.
For some reason, this is the one type of vehicle that people at auctions go for, no matter how many kilometres are on the clock. It seems that this is the vehicle that most buyers would like to own. Possible reasons for this is that, as an excellent 4x4 vehicle, its off-road capability is impressive, and the name Toyota equates with reliability.
The excellent resale value of this vehicle is due to its brand name. The Fortuner is extremely popular amongst SUV enthusiasts, regardless of whether the car is pre-owned or new. According to the auctioneer, bidding for a Toyota Fortuner at an auction takes on a more hectic pace compared to other vehicles. You see the car everywhere, especially in game parks.
The 2018 launch of the seven-seater Tiguan boosted the image of an already popular SUV. It is an example of excellent engineering and safety.
This is the third Toyota to be mentioned, which tells you something about the brand’s reputation. First launched in 1994, the RAV has always caught motorists’ attention. Riding the Toyota wave of popularity, the RAV4 makes its mark by its well-built, compact look. High sales figures continue to testify this SUV’s success. The fifth-generation RAV was recently launched in South Africa.
In March 2016, the Tucson took over from the well-known ix35. Its low running costs, an incredible seven-year/ 200 000 km warranty, as well as its good looks, make it a much sought-after SUV.
After buying one of the above amazing SUVs, you may want to protect it with car insurance. Why not get a quote on affordable car insurance with PMD, which comes with unique benefits like fixed premiums* and reduce to zero excess*. T’s and C’s apply.
