Sport sedan: Lexus GS
Price: $44,550 - $52,375
Mileage: 27 mpg Hwy, 19 mpg City (GS 350)

This is not the GS Hybrid, which finished third in this segment, after the Pontiac Grand Prix GXP. The GS doesn't quite get the fuel economy the hybrid version, but the difference is less that you'd expect: about one mile per gallon. That's why the non-hybrid comes out ahead in the final analysis.

Either way, Lexus's stellar reliabiity and resale value -- 62% after five years for this one -- make the GS a stand-out in total cost.
