Audi Depreciation

The Audi brand consistently ranks near the top for value retention in the luxury segment. But it is the sportier models in the S4, S6 and TTS that fare better than their more traditional and more pedestrian brethren, the A4, A6 and A8, with the Q series lineup falling in between. Consistent with the sport theme, it is the Audi R8 that has performed extremely well over the 3-year (#1) and 5-year (#1) holding periods, showing that even supercars can hold their value, if they have the formula right-which Audi has with their R8.

The 2016 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Audi vehicles. With the 2016, you would only pay, on average, 52% of the price as new, with 67% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2018 and 2017 model years are also attractive years for the Audi 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 Audi model.
