Nissan Depreciation

The Nissan brand generally falls to the middle of the pack when it comes to value retention, posting so-so results across the 3-, 5- and 7-year time horizons. The bright spots for Nissan is the GT-R, which ranked 8th at year 5, and 4th at year 7. Whether you purchased a Chevrolet Corvette or a Nissan GT-R, you probably got a relatively good return on your investment, and likely had a lot of fun along the way. Be careful with their sedans though, those might be better suited for Hertz and Avis, as they are popular within the rental fleets, and the big supply in the used market puts pressure on used pricing.

The 2018 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Nissan vehicles. With the 2018, you would only pay, on average, 67% of the price as new, with 83% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2019 and 2016 model years are also attractive years for the Nissan 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 Nissan model.
