James Bond never worried about how much his Aston would be worth in 5 years, as a villain would assuredly blow it up long before it reached that age. However, if you're not in the espionage industry, and you plan to own your Aston for more than a week or two to carry out your mission (or lunch), depreciation matters. If it weren't for their very high prices, Aston Martins wouldn't lose very much value_LOL. To lose $100,000 on a higher-end Aston, such as the Vanquish or DBS, in the first couple of years of ownership, is a very real, and probable likelihood. Do you care? Maybe not. Aston Martins are art on wheels, and most owners are more concerned about the journey than the financial ledger of their ride.
The 2015 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Aston Martin vehicles. With the 2015, you would only pay, on average, 51% of the price as new, with 58% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2018 and 2016 model years are also attractive years for the Aston Martin models, and provide a relatively good value. Our rankings consider multiple factors, including original new prices, current prices, maintenance costs and remaining years of overall predictabe expenses. Our top ranked model year represents the most car for the money with a Aston Martin model.

We aggregate and analyze millions of automotive data points from a variety of sources, including some of the industry's leading data providers. The historical depreciation tables, charts, values and overall rankings are conducted on a semi-annual basis, with our most recent update published in September 2020.
While the "Useful Lifespan" of a vehicle will vary greatly from one model to the next, and even one owner to the next, we have determined that twelve years is the most appropriate timeframe which will yield us good, usable data - and that any data beyond that timeframe becomes more dispersed, and ultimately less reliable. Moreover, maintenance costs beyond that timeframe become significantly more varied, as a vehicle owner's care of a particular vehicle will greatly impact its value, and ongoing maintenance costs. We are very much hopeful, however, that your car or truck will last well beyond twelve years, and that it gets you to where you want to go.
