Volume weighted, overall car segment values increased 0.16% last week, according to Black Book data. Overall truck segment values realized no real change compared to the previous week.

“Wholesale markets held steady last week with strong bidding in the auction lanes resulting in most car segments improving in values,” said Anil Goyal, senior vice president of automotive valuation and analytics.

The worst performing vehicles in the segment were prestige luxury cars and mid-size cars, with their values decreasing by 0.15% and 0.12%, respectively.
