2009 Mazda6
Price: $18,550 - $28,260

Mazda's bread-and-butter Mazda6 sedan is getting thoroughly reworked for 2009. The most obvious change is a more sharp-edged body that picks up the Mazda's new corporate look.

Engines and transmissions are also new for "next year" but, as with the Audi A4, it's that new sheet metal that will crush the resale value of all the '08 Mazda6's that people are buying.

Mazda is paying out a total of almost $3,000 in incentives on outgoing Mazda6's, according to Edmunds.com. That's a lot of money but, again, the reduced resale value of the 2008's could absorb much of those savings.
