In a recent article, we explained what car depreciation was and delved into the new model Mazda CX-5. If you missed it, you can read it here.
This time, we will be taking a look at the ever popular Hyundai i30 and how it racks up against the market average. This could be really helpful for those either looking specifically to purchase a Hyundai i30 in the near future, or if you’re in the market for a small hatch and currently in the research stage yet to make a decision on which model you want.
And remember, you can help keep the depreciation rate down by taking good care of your car. That is, make sure you get it serviced at the recommended times or kilometre readings, wash it regularly, keep it parked undercover whenever possible, and don’t push it to its limits (too often, at least).
How the Hyundai i30 depreciation measures up against the market average
Canstar advises that the industry average regarding depreciation rates are:
- 19% after the first year from purchase
- 15% after the second year
- Another 15% in the third year
With outstanding safety ratings as well as great fuel efficiency and some fantastic tech included (plus the strength of the Hyundai badge), it’s no surprise the Hyundai i30 keeps its value well. According to the depreciation tool available at themoneycalculator.com and using the base model Hyundai i30’s driveaway price* of $20,990 and converting to GBP (£11,093 as at 19/01/2020), the estimated depreciation after the first year is 15.6%, a full 3.4% lower than the industry standard. After the second year, 15.73% and another 16.49%, both marginally higher than the industry standard. The total depreciation, however, is less.
