The insight behind customer choice
Our analysts take an in-depth look into each of the Big 5 markets – France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK – to give you an independent opinion and forecast for residual values across all key segments.
Each of the Big 5 European markets has experienced economic growth over the past two years which has boosted both new and used car sales. New car sales volumes have been buoyant across all markets, with the three largest markets – France, Germany and the UK – all emulating their pre-recession peaks. However, weak new car volumes at the start of the decade mean that there has been a shortage of used car supply until now.
Residual value performance over the next three years will be determined by how these recent rises in new car registrations and policies favour alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs), particularly electric cars. The political tide is beginning to turn against diesel vehicles, with low emissions zones being implemented in multiple cities. The economic outlook for 2017 is less optimistic than in previous years and an increasingly unpredictable political environment characterised by the unexpected election of Donald Trump as US President and the UK’s decision to leave the EU has shaken consumer conﬁdence in all markets except Germany.
