Our Toyota RAV4 Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The words "Toyota" and "value" are synonymous, and the Rav4 is no exception. The Rav4 ranks right up there with all other great value-retaining vehicles, and fits in nicely with the overall value offered by most of the Toyota fleet. With dependability and low operating costs, Rav4s are exceptional values whether purchased new or used.

The 2017, 2018 & 2016 Toyota RAV4 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 66% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 RAV4. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 9.46 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2018 & 2016 RAV4 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Own a 2017 Toyota RAV4?

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.
