2010 Toy­ota Prius & 2011 Toy­ota Yaris, Chevy Cruze, Toy­ota Corol­la, and Kia Soul.
Full-Size Pick­up and SUV Val­ues Should Remain Sta­ble and Con­tin­ue to Suf­fer only Mod­est Declines through Spring:
Caused by tight­ened sup­ply from mar­ket pan­ic in 2008, and robust trends in con­struc­tion indus­try.
