How little you'll save buying used: 11.9%

Lancers from 2010 and '11 cost almost as much as new ones because there simply aren't many used editions of this low-volume line available.

"There's just a lack of supply out there for those used-car buyers who are looking for Lancers," Lyman says.

As such, you can expect to pay $17,097 for a 2010 or '11 Lancer -- just 11.9% less than the $19,411 a 2013 edition will set you back.
