6 top cars in class with high resale value

Honda Fit: Best in the subcompact segment
Honda Fit

    • City - 27 mpg
    • Highway - 33 mpg

Subcompact cars are cheaper than their larger brethren, but that doesn't mean they don't hold their value. One subcompact car in particular is the Honda Fit, which got the top billing in that category from ALG and Kelly Blue Book. According to KBB, the Honda Fit held the top spot for the third consecutive year, with a 36-month resale value of 61.5 percent. ALG gives it a resale value of 56.4 percent.

Either way, the Honda Fit is not only attractive from a resale perspective, but its fuel efficiency and affordability make it desirable to consumers who don't want a big car. Drivers and passengers won't feel cramped in the 1.5-liter four-cylinder Honda Fit, which seats five and still has 20.6 cubic feet of storage. The different seating modes, which include the utility mode, long mode and tall mode, will come in handy for anyone needing to transport cargo. It also has a secret storage compartment behind the rear seat and 10 beverage holders inside the car. Even though the Honda Fit is small, it comes with 117 horsepower and quick acceleration.
