Our Audi A3 Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The 2019, 2015 & 2018 Audi A3 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 78% of the original cost with 92% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2019 A3. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 13.75 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2015 & 2018 A3 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Own a 2019 Audi A3?
