Are you in the market to buy (or sell) a Ford KA in Buenos Aires? Vehiclus studied the local used auto market of all towns in Argentina to establish a pricing profile of various Ford models depending on their age, technical condition, optical condition, and mileage. To optimize your earnings when selling your KA (or to be sure to not be overcharged when purchasing a Ford KA) it is a good idea to understand most price-establishing variables.
Buenos Aires is a city with 13076300 inhabitants. Nevertheless, there are usually not many Ford KA for purchase on the market. Therefore, the supply is little and the demand depends on various of parameters for example maintenance costs, mileage, and brand competetivness.
As pictured below, cars of the manufacturer Ford and specially of the model KA depreciate in a very normal way. The mean value of the KA will be decreased by up to 14% ($13,713) after just 1 year. After three years, the car usually is valued at 64% of its initial selling price ($9,774) while it will only be worth 27% of the MSRP after 7 years ($4,292). The KA's value after 12 years is only 13% of its initial price depending on its condition of course.
Another way to analyze vehicle depreciation is to examine the loss of value vs kilometers driven. The Ford KA depreciation curve below shows this phenomenon for Buenos Aires. The KA looses most of its value (ca 46%) within the first 30,000km driven. The average price for a KA at that mileage is $8,850. After that the depreciation plateaus: at 90k kilometers the Ford KA is sold for $5,069 in Buenos Aires and for $2,410 at 180k kilometers of mileage.
The last parameter that significantly effects the selling price of a used car is the technical and optical condition of the vehicle. The table below describes the devaluation of a Ford KA according to its year and its condition.
