What Features Improve the Value of Your Used Car?

Did you know that different features can improve the value of your car? You may not realize it when you purchase your car, truck or SUV – but the extra cost for leather seats may pay off when you decide to sell at The Car Depot. We know you want to get the best price for your used car and you may want to know – what features improve the value of your used car? Here is a quick look at features that will improve resale value created by The Car Depot in Birmingham.

1. Leather Seats

Premium leather interior will add to the style and feel of your car and improve the resale value. Moderate-priced cars with leather seats will see the best increase in resale value – luxury cars are expected to have leather.

2. Sunroof

A sunroof is a more affordable convertible top and a highly sought after feature in used cars, trucks and SUVs that will increase the resale value when you choose to sell your vehicle – especially in warmer states like Alabama.

3. Larger Alloy Wheels

We all love the look and feel of larger wheels and it will be reflected in the resale value of your car. Alloy wheels are lighter and provide a more modern style that car shoppers look for when they get to the dealership – which means more money for you as the seller.

4. Advanced Safety Features

High-tech safety features like blind spot assist and adaptive cruise control are more and more common in modern cars and provide an added level of safety that car buyers want and will pay for. When you purchase your car, optional safety features can upgrade value down the road.

5. Special Editions and Packages

Are you looking for a truck or SUV with an upgraded suspension or tow package? Do you love the style of the latest special edition in the Chevy Silverado lineup? Special editions and packages will add to the resale value of your car when you choose to sell.

6. Exterior Color

Did you know that the most common car colors on the road are black, white, gray and silver? They are the most popular – but exterior color options like yellow, green, blue and red will improve the resale value of your car, truck or SUV.

7. Convenient Features

Anything that makes life easier is a great option. When it comes to pickup trucks, convenient features like a bedliner, a cap and additional storage compartments will upgrade the value of your pickup truck.
