4×4 values set to increase over winter period

BCA’s research shows that 4×4 values rose sharply in October by 16 per cent as the UK felt the first suggestions of winter weather.

4×4 values are rising because of their ability to handle tough conditions on- and off-road conditions. Weather experts have also advised drivers that this winter will be particularly harsh for the UK, which will likely lead to consecutive value increases over the coming months.

With the data available and based on predictions from the Met Office, Perrys advise people looking to invest in a new or used 4×4 – such as the Mazda CX-5, for instance – to do so sooner rather than later before values inflate further.

Tim Naylor from BCA comments: “There is a well charted trend between falling temperatures and rising values for 4x4s and we would expect to see that continue in the next few months. And the first hint of snow across the wider UK could create significant demand for 4x4s which will send values even higher.

“When it comes to choosing a 4×4, buyers should go for the best specification they can afford, as this will help the vehicle retain its value in the years ahead.”

Perrys has a phenomenal range of 4x4s for customers to choose from, which include some of the most affordable online deals available today.

The new Mazda CX-5 is available from £21,395 and comes with some truly amazing features to combat poor weather, including the manufacturer’s SKYACTIV technology for a more dynamic driving experience. The Mazda CX-5 is also one of the most environmentally-friendly cars in its class.
