LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Last week, cars showed better retention that they did the previous four weeks, while trucks depreciated more than they have during that same timeframe, Black Book reported today.

Car values decreased by 0.57% last week, lower than the segment’s 0.66% average depreciation rate recorded over the previous four weeks. Truck values decreased by 0.58%, which was higher than the average depreciation rate of 0.43% recorded during the same timeframe.

“Broader declines seen in the market last week as segments with larger declines included sub-compact cars, sporty cars, mid-size crossovers and full-size pickups.” said Anil Goyal, Senior Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics.

The sporty car, prestige luxury car and compact car segments declined the most, dropping by 1.20%, 0.99%, and 0.82%, respectively. In the truck category, full-size vans, mid-size crossovers and SUVs, and full-size pickups declined the most, dropping 1.02%, 0.75%, and 0.74%, respectively.
