The fastest of all the cars in this review will depreciate the Ford S-MAX. The reason for this is the expensive maintenance, expensive hardware and such disadvantages as mediocre insulation, low ground clearance and short-lived front struts. However, the C-MAX boasts excellent handling, a roomy trunk and solid decoration materials. The choice on the market is huge, but this model is not particularly popular - take 15–20 days to implement.
In five years, Renault Scenic loses almost half the cost. Although the Frenchman has more than one dignity (decent clearance, excellent visibility, comfortable suspension), it could not do without flaws. Here is a short list of them: unreliable machine, flimsy steering rack, expensive parts, poor insulation. Demand for "scenes" is low, so we recommend patience for the time of sale (25-30 days).
Only one percent of the profit won from the Scenic Korean Kia-Carens. Moreover, this model also has many weaknesses: a voracious engine, low ground clearance, an inefficient heater, expensive maintenance, and rough finishing materials. Of the pluses, we note the good equipment of basic configurations, cheap consumables and spare parts. On the market, Karen does not stagnate and finds a new owner in 12-17 days.
Mazda-5 is a little better. Its distinguishing features are the rare sliding rear doors in this class, high-quality finish, cheap consumables and spare parts, excellent handling. Disadvantages - a defect in the power steering (recently identified, found on cars manufactured in 2009-2010), poor sound insulation and short-lived stabilizer bushings. The demand for Mazda is stable, attractive instance will take 10-15 days.
Best of all, you can sell the Volkswagen-Turan. Moreover, this car has enough minuses: the DSG robot is not very reliable and expensive to repair, high prices for consumables and spare parts, expensive maintenance, capricious FSI engines with direct injection, and low dipped beam. The advantages include high-quality finishing materials, excellent sound insulation, tight suspension, high ground clearance (170 mm), economical engines, good handling and a spacious interior. But it’s unlikely that it will be possible to quickly implement Turan; a real buyer will have to wait 20-25 days.

We calculate the vehicle’s markdown over five years of operation based on offers on the Internet. After going through more than a thousand ads for the sale of cars in the same trim levels and summing up the data, we calculate the average figure for a single model.
