9. 2013 Honda Civic

Resale Value at 36 months: 62.5%
Resale Value at 60 months: 46.9%

The 2013 Honda Civic has not yet been released, but Kelley Blue Book places it ninth on its list because of its reputation as the "gold standard" of compact cars. It was redesigned for 2013, and although some of the reaction has been lukewarm, that hasn't affected its predicted resale value.

"In spite of some criticism about minor changes in redesign, the Civic continued to be the best seller in its segment," Ibara said. "The Civic has again been one of those vehicles that retains its value very well as part of being a Honda, and with the changes implemented this year, the Civic tops its segment."
