Chevrolet Malibu
Sticker price: $21,605 - $26,880
Wholesale price: $20,417 - $25,402
Market price: $17,291 - $22,184

This may surprise people who haven't driven a GM product in a long time but the Malibu, handsome as it is, seems even better when you drive it. The ride is nicely cushioned but totally controlled. The Malibu feels like you're driving a much more expensive luxury sedan, not a bad mattress.

Inside, the Malibu has an artfully designed interior that suffers only slightly from cheap pieces here and there. The seats can be had in a nice two-tone leather combination. The Malibu ranks at the top in initial quality, according to J.D. Power and Assoc. and reliability is "very good" according to Consumer Reports.

For those looking for something more stylish than a Camry and more stately than an Accord, here's your car. And, right now, you can't beat the price.
