You Get What You Pay For


Top 11 Cars With Best Residual Value

Residual value is one of the most important factors to consider when obtaining a new vehicle, especially if you plan on leasing. How much it’s worth at the end of the contract has a huge impact on how much you’ll be paying each month. Which cars on the market today hold their value best? The folks at ALG have it all figured out. In no particular order, here they are.

1. The perfect day at the track is wet early and dry late


mercedes benz driving academy wet

Not a minute into the drive to the track and the drops of rain started to appear.

Sitting for our classroom session at the newly renovated pavilion at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (formerly Mosport) east of Toronto, Canada and the ominous clouds didn’t hold back on the drama, soaking the 2.5 miles of asphalt in what our chief instructor Danny Kok calls “liquid excitement.”

I’m here to participate in the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy’s Mastering Performance program along with another journalist and a selection of paying customers.

The group of us depart the facilities just as the track is beginning its long drying process… something we were about to aid with a caravan of shiny new Benzes.

The ideal thing about a wet track in the morning is that it teaches you to be cautious. With reduced grip it also amplifies the car’s behavior. And when practicing trail braking with an emphasis on gradual modulation of the pedal, you couldn’t ask for a better (but also more frustrating) learning experience.

With another mid-morning sprinkle, we took an early lunch in the hopes the track would try out again. And it did, leaving us with excellent grip and an afternoon of lapping the full circuit at significantly faster speeds with a little new-found (or recently practiced) skill under our belts.
