20 Cars That Will Be Worthless After 5 Years Of Ownership

While some new cars may seem like they offer great features, performance, and overall value for the money, their depreciation rates often tell a much different story.

We've updated this list with even more models proven to have some of the highest five-year depreciation rates.

Here's a look at 20 cars that will probably be worthless in 5 years.

The Cadillac brand of cars, from their SUVs to their sedans to their performance cars and sports cars, are all subject to depreciation, the kind of depreciation that makes these cars worthless after 5 years.

The Volkswagen Passat is one of the most common and prolific Volkswagen models you can buy.

The Buick Enclave is a car that you should probably never buy new.

Chrysler, while attempting to be a luxury line of cars, really isn't quite up to par.

The Volkswagen Jetta is basically the twin sister of the Passat. It's a little smaller and starts at a little lower of a price point than the Passat, but it's one of VW's most popular models.

A 3-Series BMW is a great car to buy. It really is. It's sporty, fast, has a great engine, great handling, it's also practical, and somewhat of a reliable car, too.

BMW 3-Series

The great new frontier in the car industry is electric. Governments are trying to eliminate combustion engines entirely, even trying to outlaw them, which means that the era of gasoline is quickly coming to an end.

The best thing about the German cars, though, is that they are made with integrity, no corners cut, and they aren't cheaply manufactured, unlike some American models that depreciate only because they immediately become unreliable.

Audi A3

Buying a BMW new means that you make a lot of money each year, and can afford a pretty expensive car payment each month, and you only care about having the nicest thing possible, no matter how good of a value it is (or isn't).

BMW 5-Series

The biggest factor leading to the depreciation rates of the Fiat 500L is more than likely due to the fact that it isn't desirable.

The Cadillac CTS is a car that will plummet in value over the next five years, and it's almost guaranteed that this car will be worth well below half its selling price very, very soon.

Minivans never do all that well in the used car market, not when it comes to retaining their value, anyway.

Kia Sedona

One aspect that drastically influences a car's depreciation rate is reliability, and unfortunately, all Land Rover products are prone to break way too often, so it's no surprise to see the Evoque end up on this list.

As we move through this list, you'll see a common pattern start to form: German luxury cars. While they may be exquisite to be the passenger or even the driver, they're prone to losing value fast over a short period.

Audi A8

There's nothing quite like realizing you can have a six-figure car for the price of a Toyota Corolla. It has an electrically satisfying, palpable excitement.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

It's an unfortunate sight to see such amazing cars as the BMW 7-Series subject to such precipitous depreciation values.

Electric cars have aggressive depreciation values, worse than a lot of gasoline cars on the market right now.

Nissan Leaf

You'll find a lot of cars pretty similar to this one in this list. There's just nothing that really is valuable about a Lincoln MKZ because there's nothing special about it.

Mercedes-Benz, one of the leading car manufacturers in the world, makes and sells some of the greatest, best performing, and most luxurious sedans, sports cars, and SUVs that you can buy, especially if they have an AMG badge.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

To end off this list, we have the worst of the bunch, a superfast, striking, Italian sedan produced by Maserati, the Quattroporte.
