‘How do I buy a car with good re­sale value?’

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - MOTORING -

A white hatch­back is the most sought-af­ter car in the coun­try – with a Toy­ota Corolla the most pop­u­lar, ac­cord­ing to stats an­a­lysed by Gumtree South Africa. Jeff Os­borne, Gumtree’s head of au­to­mo­tive, says twice as many white ve­hi­cles are listed as blue ones, fol­lowed by sil­ver. Os­borne at­tributes this to white be­ing syn­ony­mous with lower costs of main­te­nance and re­pair. There’s also a clear pref­er­ence for hatch­backs - 46% of users - over sedans (25%) or SUVs (14%).
