Used Cars and Trucks with the Highest Residual Value in 2020

ALG, an industry authority on automotive residual value projections in both Canada and the United States, today announced the winners of its 2020 Pre-Owned Value Awards (POVA), ranking Toyota and Lexus as the top Mainstream Brand and Premium Brand across the board.

"Toyota and Lexus were early champions of the Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) marketplace, which combined with their reputation for durability and quality, lands them the 2020 Brand Awards for Pre-Owned Value," said Eric Lyman, Chief Industry Analyst, ALG.

The 2020 POVAs are awarded to vehicles with the lowest forecasted depreciation from two years of age to five years of age, during the period 2019-2022.

Award winners are determined through careful analysis of used vehicle performance, brand outlook and product competitiveness. Eligibility for a brand award requires a manufacturer to have vehicle entries in at least four different segments. To account for differences across trim levels, model averages are weighted based on percentage share relative to the entire model line.
