Unhappy Mini Clubman Depreciation

Hi anyone guessing on the residuals of these cars...?

I recenlt found an article quoting 55% for MCS clubman 3 years 36k miles, what do you guys think to tha???

I was hoping nearer 60%, think its a little better for the diesel about 58%. They say extras depend on which ones for resale but leather, chilli, aircon are the optimal ones but others like sat nav and panoramic sunroof give reasonable residuals.

Ideas welcome

chris

I can't see that in the UK, the Mini brand is one of the slowest depreciating cars in the UK (even less than a Boxster) Plus Glasses seem to love them (and the Clubman)

The big stickign point will come if Mini flood the market with them (no sign of that yet) and they only cars I'd mark down less are the launch cars, look on the Cherished website, there must be around 10-20 examples of the exact same car for sale at the moment.

I reckon the depreciation will be fine, on a par or better than the hatchback (around 70%), remember that all the extras apart from the Packs, Paint and TLC count for very little in trade terms. So a Chilli Clubman OTR circa £16k should be worth roughly £11-11.5k in 3 years time.

I still reckon the S will get hit the worst and the Diesels should excel, especially as Toll roads and Congestion Charges will be more commonplace in 3-5 years time.

Just wait till you try to trade it in & see what the dealer offers you . It will be nothing like that!

2nd generations held their value until the 3rd generation came out and now instead of being very slow to depreciate they are depreciating fast

Just goes to show how the world has changed,
In 2008 when this post was started the congestion
charges was mentioned, with petrol being the big looser,

now 9 years later you are being limited about what city
you can drive diesel cars in,,

I am changing a diesel car to a petrol one for just this reason,

In the UK
January 2008 104.3ppl Diesel Average
January 2017 122.9ppl Diesel Average

January 2008 104.3ppl 95 Ron Unleaded Average
January 2017 111.9ppl 95 Ron Unleaded Average

You can clearly see where the money has been made over the years,
and with the addition of a City Tax..Well Unleaded Petrol is theway to go..

Your are absolutely correct here and I can bet that once the government finally kills of the diesel engines they will quickly turn their attention to the petrol cousins and they will tax fuel to the hilt to force us like cattle in to buying electric cars...

when the options are less they can tax the electric & Hybrid cars due to the road repairs still
neding to be done, and the petrol drivers will not be paying enough tax to cover the costs..

Before then it will be a bumpy ride for anyone in a Mini,
espacially a cooper S with big wheels...
