Are you currently in the market to buy (or sell) a Audi S4 in Shanghai? Vehiclus surveyed the used automotive market of all towns in China to establish a pricing profile of various Audi models depending on their age, technical condition, optical condition, and mileage. In order to optimize your profits when selling your S4 (or to be certain to not be overcharged when purchasing a Audi S4) it is of value to know most price-determining factors.
Shanghai is a town with 22315474 inhabitants. However, it is hard to find more than a dozen Audi S4 on the used car market at the same time. That's why the supply is not high and the demand depends on a multitude of parameters for example season, mileage, and reliability.
As pictured below, cars of the manufacturer Audi and especially of the model S4 loose their value in a very normal process. The average value of the S4 will be lowered by up to 14% ($61,466) after just one year. After 3 years, the car typically is sold for approximately 62% of its initial asking price ($43,642) while it will only be valued at 31% of the original price after 7 years ($19,616). The S4's value after twelve years is only 13% of its initial price depending on its condition of course.
One more way to describe vehicle depreciation is to examine the loss of value vs miles driven. The Audi S4 depreciation curve below shows this phenomenon for the city of Shanghai. The S4 looses most of its value (ca 46%) within the first 20,000miles (30,000km) driven. The mean price for a S4 at that mileage is $39,804. After that the depreciation slows down: at 90,000km the Audi S4 is valued for $22,679 in Shanghai and for $11,231 at 180,000km driven.
The last parameter that heavily effects the sell price of a used car is the technical and optical condition of the vehicle. The table below illustrates the devaluation of a Audi S4 according to its year and its condition.
