Audi Q7 Depreciation

An Audi Q7 will depreciate 59% after 5 years and have a 5 year resale value of $28,827.

The Audi Q7 fares just barely better than its little brother, the Q5, with respect to losing value, but it's still not very convincing if buying new. If I were you, I'd look for a 2017 or 2018 that has come off of lease, and save yourself a lot of money. Also, try to find a Q7 that is "certified", and has an extended warranty, as that is where the real value lies.

The chart below shows the expected depreciation for the next 10 years. These results are for vehicles in good condition, averaging 12,000 miles per year. It also assumes a selling price of $69,598 when new. Enter your purchase price, expected ownership period and estimated miles driven annually.

Buying an Audi Q7 New vs Used

If you purchase a used Audi Q7 that is 2 years old, then you could save $19,634 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $21,137. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used Q7 models become available.
