Two types of vehicles are especially likely to see steep plunges in value. Status-seeking luxury-brand buyers and frugal environmentalists rarely find themselves lumped into the same category. But both groups tend to see the value of the cars they prefer plunge dramatically, according to a recent analysis by iSeeCars. The automotive search engine and research website says luxury sedans make up eight of the 10 vehicles with the highest depreciation rates after five years. Meanwhile, being friendly to the Earth can be hostile to your wallet, according to the rankings. Two alternative-fuel vehicles also had the dubious honor of making the list. The 10 vehicles with the worst depreciation rates are: BMW 7 Series: Loses 72.6% of its value after five years, on average BMW 5 Series: 70.1% Nissan LEAF: 70.1% Audi A6: 69% Maserati Ghibli: 69% Mercedes-Benz E-Class: 69% Volvo S60: 67.8% Mercedes-Benz S-Class: 67.1% Lincoln MKZ: 67.1% BMW X3: 66.5%
