Honda's venerable little Fit has a consistently high resale value. (2016 model shown.)
This diminutive hatchback offers solid fuel economy and plenty of storage versatility.
Subaru's Impreza is all new for the 2017 model year (that's the model shown here).
We recently took a spin in both the sedan and hatchback, and walked away impressed.
If you want an Impreza that's a bit more fun, opt for the 268-horsepower WRX. (2015 model shown.)
It's available with either a manual or continuously variable transmission, the latter of which isn't too bad for this performance sedan.
Subaru's Legacy might not be very fun, but oh man, is it practical.
It's available with two different engines -- a flat-four, or a flat-six.
The Maxima being on this list proves that interesting styling isn't always a hit against resale value.
Plenty of other Nissan models are following in the Maxima's design footsteps now, too.
The Lexus RC is a vast departure from previous Lexus vehicles. (2015 model shown.)
Its funky styling has migrated to a host of other Lexus vehicles, as well, and don't expect that trend to stop.
The Lexus GS is a big-body Japanese bruiser available with a variety of powertrains, including a hybrid.
This here is the GS F, the performance variant. It's a riot.
Porsche's Panamera is all new for 2017, sporting a look closer to the current 911.
Gone is the bubble butt of yore, and in its place is a more proper hatchback.
The 718 Cayman ditches the old Cayman's flat-six engine in favor of a turbocharged flat-four.
The engine note might not be as good, but it sure as hell handles every bit as well as the old one.
If the regular Ford Mustang isn't enough for you, perhaps the Shelby Mustang GT350 is enough.
Its flat-plane-crank V8 engine will scream its way up to a ludicrously high rev limiter.
The Honda Accord Hybrid is just 1 mpg short of achieving 50 mpg in the city.
Combine its efficiency with Honda's legacy of high resale values, and you've got a winner.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is entirely new, walking into this category within a few months of going on sale.
Many other EVs on the market are limited in market size and on the old side, so it's no wonder the Bolt is on this list.
Honda's HR-V takes everything good about the Fit and puts it on a set of stilts. (2016 model shown.)
The HR-V promises capacity and fuel economy for the small family on the go, and those promises are definitely met.
The Jeep Wrangler will outlive me, you and everyone you know.
Expect a new Wrangler to be announced either later this year or early next year.
Toyota's 4Runner is yet another badge that's existed for a damned long time. (2016 model shown.)
But it's earned its place at the table thanks to a blend of capability and capaciousness.
Do you need an SUV the size of a small house? The Suburban is worth looking at, then. (2015 model shown.)
The Suburban is yet another name that's been bouncing around the auto industry for decades.
Porsche's Macan might not be long in the tooth, but the Audi Q5 underneath that sheet metal is.
The Macan impressed us with its excellent specs that translated to a sublime drive when the going got twisty.
It might look like a Japanese spaceship, but the Lexus RX remains one of the automaker's most popular vehicles. (2016 model shown.)
You can't pass a single bank in town without seeing at least one of this puppies parked in the employee lot out back.
The Lexus LX is little more than a tarted-up Toyota Land Cruiser. (2016 model shown.)
But since this is a luxury category, the Land Cruiser can't win, so the honor goes to its Lexus variant.
Every day is Taco Tuesday when you're rocking a Toyota Tacoma.
The Tacoma is another vehicle that's regularly lauded for its reliability and capability in a very small segment.
I'm running out of steam on these captions.
It's OK, there are only two more to go.
The "Swagger Wagon" is the final vehicle on KBB's list of cars with the best resale value. (2015 model shown.)
It's a Toyota built for families. Would you expect it to sell for pennies on the dollar so soon after being released?
