Average 5-year depreciation percentage: 40.0%
You're going to see several trucks and sport utility vehicles on this list, with a couple high-performance coupes mixed in to keep things interesting. What you won't see are any more sedans or hatchbacks like the Subaru WRX. And we're not terribly surprised. In a world crazed with crossovers of every shape and size, sedans and hatchbacks are a dying breed (see the loss of the dearly departed Mitsubishi Evolution series for further evidence). That's especially so of cars like the WRX that are aimed at driving enthusiasts, and that means they can command a premium on the used market.
