The insight behind future thinking

This report examines the recent rise of the SUV and explores whether the solid growth in residual values can continue in 2017 and into 2018 and 2019. It identifies the segments that are growing most strongly and which still represent potential. The report also details the challenges facing the market that could restrict growth, particularly the potential for over-supply of used cars and the need to comply with the regulatory push towards lower-emission

With a facelift for the Ford Kuga, the launch of the Skoda Kodiaq and the arrival of the Opel Crossland X, the SUV category will again be the focus of OEM launch activity in 2017 as OEMs continue to muscle in on this highly popular market. But is the meteoric rise of the SUV set to continue?

New car sales have achieved growth in double digit percentages in recent years, fuelled by a wealth of model launches. With many popular models, including the second-generation Nissan Qashqai and Mercedes-Benz GLA reaching the used car market, is there a potential for over-supply of used cars, stemming residual value growth?
