Our Audi Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

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 (#2) holding periods, showing that even supercars can hold their value, if they have the formula right-which Audi has with their R8.

The 2016, 2017 & 2018 Audi model years are currently the best values in our opinion.

On average, expect to pay only 50% of the original cost with 67% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2016 Audi. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 16.34 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2018 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
