Hyundai or Diahatsu best for re-sale?

Asked by Andrew Caddy

I am considering either a Daihatsu Sirion 1.0 or Hyundai Getz 1.5 manual and plan to keep it for four years. Just wondering which one is more likely to hold its value over this period. They come at the same cost on the road and the Hyundai is probably the better drive, though retained value is an important consideration.

The Hyundai would be my bet. They are popular with young drivers and dealers like to have them in their yards for that reason. The fact that it has a bigger engine will also give it more appeal when you come to sell it. The Daihatsu's 1.0-litre engine is a little small and that will hold it back. If, however, you were planning to keep the car longer, I would be tempted to go for the Daihatsu as they have greater reliability than the Hyundai. The Daihatsu seems to be the favoured final transport of older folk who want a reliable run in their last years.
