I am looking to buy a new car for a couple (with rear being used very rarely) which we plan to sell off in 4 years. So I am looking at resale value as a big factor. My budget was below $30k but can finance and stretch to $35k if the math works out.
What I mean by math works out is, if I take say a Kia Stonic and CX-30 as examples.
e.g. Kia Stonic Sport - $25k may sell for $15k
Mazda CX-30 - $32k may sell for $21k
With lower total servicing cost and better fuel economy on the Mazda, both cars would end up costing around 10k for 4 years.
By this logic it makes sense to say get a CX-30 as I get a lot more car for 4 years.
Edit: Hatch v Sedan v Small SUV. Which will have the better resale?
