Volkswagen vehicles offer the best resale value, according to vehicle evaluation group True Price .
The group’s latest resale value statistics for 2019 showed three Volkswagen vehicles in the top 10 positions

Resale value is the amount a vehicle is expected to sell for at some point in the future, while trade-in value is the amount of credit automotive dealers are willing to offer toward the purchase price of a new or used car in exchange for ownership of your current car.
