ALG today announced its Canadian Residual Value Awards, honoring the vehicles in each segment that are predicted to retain the highest percentage of their original price after a conventional retail lease. The awards are based on 2009 model year vehicles. ALG also has included awards for the brands that have the highest overall predicted resale values among all mainstream and all luxury vehicles. The awards are derived after carefully studying segment competition, historical vehicle performance and industry trends, and are based on analysis using only Canada-specific data. Nissan Canada Inc. received four segment Residual Value Awards, for the Maxima (Full Size Car); the GT-R (Luxury Sports Car); the Rogue (Compact Utility Vehicle); and the Murano (Midsize Utility Vehicle).
