Vehiclus studied the used auto market of all metropolitan areas in South Africa to determine a pricing profile of various Citroen models depending on their age, technical condition, optical condition, and mileage.

Pietermaritzburg is a metropolitan area with a population of 750845 inhabitants. However, it is hard to find more than a handful Citroen C2 on the market at the same time. Hence, the supply is small and the demand depends on a multitude of parameters for example brand reputation, mileage, and reliability.

The C2's value after 12 years is only 12% of its original price depending on its condition of course.

After that the depreciation slows down: at 90k kilometers the Citroen C2 is sold for $8,074 in Pietermaritzburg and for $3,219 at 180k km of mileage.
