Two vehi­cle seg­ments that have shown stark con­trast in vehi­cle val­ue reten­tion trends have been large SUVs ver­sus small cars. Full Size Crossover/SUVs are retain­ing val­ue bet­ter than lev­els seen in last 10 years, while Com­pact Cars are on the decline after reach­ing a peak in 2013. Remar­keters have seen over­all sta­ble con­di­tions at auc­tions with bad weath­er hav­ing some effect.
