4. Dacia Duster 1.6 SCe Ambiance

List price: £10,595

Depreciation after year 1: £8950 (84.47%)

Depreciation after year 2: £7425 (70.08%)

Depreciation after year 3: £6175 (58.28%)

Start with a bargain price, and depreciation slows down dramatically. So, on that basis, the Duster is among the best cars here. It's cheap, and that means there are compromises to be made in terms of interior quality and refinement, but thanks to its spacious interior and the option of four-wheel drive, the Duster still makes a very good case for itself.

3. Mini hatchback 1.5 Cooper JCW

List price: £18,390

Depreciation after year 1: £14,950 (81.29%)

Depreciation after year 2: £12,300 (66.88%)

Depreciation after year 3: £10,100 (54.92%)

The three-door Mini hatchback is all about driving fun, and we also like its low running costs. In 1.5-litre petrol form, it offers peppy performance which seems ideally suited to city streets. There's also a good amount of kit included with Cooper models.

2. Audi S3 hatchback 2.0 TFSI Black Edition

List price: £34,340

Depreciation after year 1: £35,250 (£94.9%)

Depreciation after year 2: £29,000 (78.1%)

Depreciation after year 3: £23,800 (64.1%)

Hot hatchbacks aren't famed for holding onto their value, but Audi's go-faster version of the A3 family hatch is an exception to the rule. It's loud, fast and comes with four-wheel drive as standard, and its 306bhp petrol engine brings plenty of driving thrills.
