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