This five-year-old Land Rover Range Rover Sport is 17% cheaper this year than last.

"An increase in new car sales post-recession has brought more used-car inventory into the market," says Ricky Beggs, a senior VP at research firm Black Book. As a result, the average one-to five-year-old auto today sells for 13% less than last year.

"While prices have indeed started to come down, they are still noticeably higher than where they were prior to the recession," Beggs notes.

The best deals: luxury SUVs and full-size cars, which had bigger than average drops, probably due to gas-price worries.
