Good - it seems you've learnt something too.
How could I fail to?
Yep and hopefully you've learnt that condition is far more important than year of manufacture when pricing or buying a secondhand bike.
In the OP's situation with two 'new' bikes the condition is likely to be quite similar, I'd have thought, just taking a flying guess.
So, to repeat myself, particularly if he wanted to sell on quickly the 2018 would have retained significantly more value than the 2016, it being this year's model and as such more desirable. That was echoed in my research when buying another bike from the Whyte range.
In short, I was answering the OP's query, at least until we went on a voyage via small ads, various, a moon and much else
