An industry report conducted by the UK's leading used car valuators, Glass's, has revealed that three Land Rover models are amongst the top ten ranked vehicles retaining the highest residual values over the first three years of ownership.
The three year-old (57 plate) Land Rover Freelander 2 GS TD4 Auto ranked in fourth place, Land Rover Discovery 3 2.7 TDV6 in sixth place, and the Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2.7 TDV6 ninth in the top ten ranked vehicles.
Adrian Rushmore of Glass's said: "The British love affair with the 4x4 has meant residual values of several models have remained high. In Glass's list of the top 10 best performing three-year old (57-plate) models in terms of residual value, Land Rover claimed three spots. Besides the aspirational appeal of the Land Rover brand, consumers have remembered how well their Land Rovers performed in the extreme winter weather last year and this has also impacted positively on their residual value. "
Colin Green, Land Rover managing director added: "Land Rover vehicles offer stylish design, ground-breaking technology, and unrivalled all-terrain capabilities making them the ideal vehicles for all weather conditions. Our approved used vehicles have been thoroughly checked by specialist technicians and come covered by Land Rover's comprehensive warranty. Now with excellent residual values and finance offers available across the range, ownership has never been so appealing."Published 9 December 2010
