BMW Resale Value

2020 BMW 5 Series Trio

As you shop for a used luxury vehicle on our Tempe lot or in our showroom, looking over our selection of BMW vehicles is an excellent choice. One factor that could sell you on one of these German beauties is the BMW resale value. Your BMW’s value over time is essential if you want to trade it in for a newer one in five to eight years. Regarding BMW resale values, some models have higher ones than others when buying your next Phoenix commuter.

Read on to learn more about BMW’s value over time. Reading our guide may influence your decision about which used BMW belongs in your Scottsdale garage. No matter which one you set your heart on, you’ll have a great purchase due to the BMW resale values we present here, courtesy of iAUTOHAUS.

Pre-Owned BMW X3

The BMW X3 has one of the best BMW resale values for an SUV! The 2015, 2014, and 2013 pre-owned BMW X3 model years are at the top. On average, for a 2015 pre-owned BMW X3, drivers can expect to pay around 40% of the original cost as a sale price. 

Even better, the BMW X3 has improved as time progresses because engineering has improved and the luxury accouterments have been refined. The most recent incarnation of the X3 should retain its value at an even better rate than the 2015 model. You’ll get a 248-hp turbo engine, Brake Energy Regeneration, oak wood trim, smartphone integration, a Hi-Fi Sound System with 12 speakers, HD Radio™, and more. The cargo capacity measures 28.7 to 62.7 cubic feet, and there is plenty of cargo space for fun weekend getaways to your favorite resort or your next cross-country summer vacation. 

BMW 2-Series

The BMW 2-Series is traditionally one of the least expensive BMWs on the market. However, it holds more of its BMW resale value than the 3-Series! Why? Because the 2-Series is leased less often. When models are hired a lot, they are readily available at dealerships. They’re frequently turned in at the end of lease contracts. This makes the 2-Series a more valuable commodity because it’s often a shopper’s first foray into BMW ownership. 

The 2016, 2017, and 2019 BMW 2-Series models currently offer the best BMW resale values. On average, for a 2016 2-Series, drivers can expect to pay around 52% of the original cost. If you don’t mind a small backseat, the 2-Series is ideal for you and your sweetie as you head to a cozy weekend getaway departing from Chandler. The most recent model offers a 248-hp turbo engine, Launch Control (with the automatic transmission), driver-selectable drive modes, Active Driving Assistant®, and more. 


Consider a zippy roadster if you want to feel your hair in the breeze on Tempe streets and highways! The BMW Z4 is one of the most cost-effective luxury roadsters, thanks to one of the best BMW resale values in its class. The 2014, 2015, and 2016 editions of the BMW Z4 currently offer the best values. On average, for a 2015 Z4, drivers can expect to pay around 46% of the original price. This resale value is what makes this BMW special.

The latest BMW Z4 packs a 255-hp turbo engine, Variable Sport Steering, a heated-glass rear window, BMW ConnectedDrive® Services, smartphone integration, Dynamic Cruise Control®, and Live Cockpit Professional with a 10.25-inch touchscreen and a touchpad controller. 

No matter which BMW you choose, you’re getting the perfect vehicle for the price!
