Used car values rose by 4.7% in November, according to auction firm BCA.
It says the average sale price was up by £453 during the month to reach £10,101, the third highest figure on record.
This also represented a year-on-year increase of 2.4%, despite both the average age and mileage of cars sold rising, which BCA attributed to steady demand from buyers and a well-balanced supply of stock.
Fleet and lease values averaged £12,181 in November - the highest on record, and a year-on-year increase of 4,3%, despite average age and mileage again rising.
Dealer part-exchange values increased by just £9 during the month to £5,189 - a 1.9% year-on-year fall.
Nearly-new car values were up by £758 month-on-month and £1,617 (6.7%) year-on-year to £25,787.
BCA COO for UK remarketing Stuart Pearson said: "There were good levels of confident trading activity at BCA during November across all sectors, with both high volume buyers and independent dealers competing for stock."
