Kia Forte Resale Value and Depreciation

See how much the Kia Forte depreciates and retains its value over a 3-, 5-, 7- and 10-year timeframe.

Depreciation is the single largest factor in the cost of owning a vehicle. That means knowing how much a vehicle depreciates over time and how well it will hold its value is important. iSeeCars analyzed over 15 million vehicles to determine how much each model depreciates over a 3-, 5-, 7- and 10-year period. Typically, five years is the timeframe used to evaluate and compare depreciation across vehicles.

A new Kia Forte depreciates 34.8 percent after five years, resulting in a resale value of $13,036. In comparison, the compact car category, which the Kia Forte belongs to, loses 32.1 percent of its value after five years. For further context, the five-year depreciation for all sedans is 39.8 percent and for all vehicles is 42 percent.

If you plan to drive a new Kia Forte for shorter or longer than five years, check the depreciation data for the other time periods. After three years, an Kia Forte sees a depreciation of 22.9 percent with a resale value of $15,403. Its 7-year depreciation is 47.8 percent and 10-year depreciation is 62.9 percent.

Methodology

iSeeCars analyzed over 15 million vehicles to calculate the depreciation and resale value for each model after 3, 5, 7, and 10 years. The depreciation for a given model is calculated from the difference between the new car price and the used car price for the model at each age. Factors such as the car’s automaker and vehicle segment are taken into account in iSeeCars' mathematical model to estimate resale value and depreciation. Various segment averages are also calculated for context.
