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 are its Frontier and Titan pick-ups, which outperform its passenger cars. 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. Regarding the LEAF, you're better off "leafing" that one alone, and choosing elsewhere, as financial danger awaits for LEAF purchasers.

The 2020 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Nissan vehicles. With the 2020, you would only pay, on average, 85% of the price as new, with 83% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2019 and 2018 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.
