This week’s Black Book Market Insights reveals which segment is opening 2016 with a price increase. And while the increase isn’t by a large margin, it’s a segment that might surprise some people, especially given how it fared during much of 2015. Separately, this week’s report shines a light on truck segments, which continue to largely open 2016 with a thud compared to the momentum they had in 2015.


“Overall weekly depreciation rates decreased as some segments start to show strength prior to the tax-season. We expect depreciation to remain low through the tax season,” said Anil Goyal, Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics.


  • Volume-weighted, overall car values decreased by 0.29% last week. Last year, the same week (week 3) declined by a rate of 0.33%.
  • The Mid-size Car segment is the first of 2016 to rise in value (a mere 0.02%), Compact and Full-size Car segments had the largest changes for the week at -0.54% and -0.56% respectively.
  • Volume-weighted, overall truck values decreased by 0.39% last week. Last year, the same week (week 3) declined by a rate of 0.17%.
  • The Sub-compact, Compact and Mid-size CUV/SUV segments received their least depreciation of the month. All Luxury CUV/SUV segments depreciated over half a percent for the week.
