Top five cars rising in value

Posted on 11th November 2022

Even though there has been a slight dip recently, the value of used cars is still remarkably strong. With supply constraints continuing to hamper the new car market, second-hand values are continuing to climb as drivers try to get behind the wheel of cars.

Plus, HPL Motors has the facility to check out the price of your current car via the ‘Value Your Car’ page. All you need to do is enter your car’s registration, its mileage and a method of contact. HPL will then be in touch with its valuation right away, meaning you’ve got all the knowledge you need. Here, we’re going to take a look at some of the cars that have been seriously rising in value lately. 

Peugeot 108

There’s a real demand for simple, no-fuss city cars and the Peugeot 108 nails that brief directly. It’s great for first-time drivers or those who don’t want to be weighed down by big running costs or large servicing bills. 

Needless to say, prices for the 108 have been on the climb. So if you’re an owner, you may want to check out its value. 

Renault Scenic


Renault’s Scenic has been a go-to model for families over many years, with this French MPV’s practical and spacious interior proving particularly useful for drivers who need practicality above all else. 

Since there aren’t too many cars of a similar size and shape to the Scenic currently on sale, it’s little wonder why prices have been seriously ramping up recently. 

Ford Puma

Ford’s Puma has seen some serious growth in recent years and, particularly in the new-car market, has consistently outsold the Fiesta - despite the two sharing the same platform and being basically the same underneath. 

This popularity has blended through into the used car market, too, with many drivers eager to get their hands on a second-hand example of this funky-looking crossover. 

Citroen C4 Grand Picasso

Much like the Scenic, Citroen’s C4 Grand Picasso is a car that doesn’t really have many modern equivalents. It’s got boatloads of space and has seven seats too, so it’s great for larger families or bigger groups. 

Since there aren’t all that many new-car equivalents to the C4 Grand Picasso, this seven-seater’s prices have been really spiking over recent months. 

Nissan X-Trail

Nissan’s X-Trail is a car that delivers on a number of fronts. It’s got chunky, eye-catching styling but this is backed up by a well-made cabin with plenty of equipment included on all specifications. 

Plus, it’s got seven seats. With demand for crossovers and SUVs at a sky-high point currently, it’s little wonder why prices for used X-Trails have been going up.
