14: Mazda 929
If you look at the Mazda lineup in the ’90s you won’t miss much. The brand was going through a lot of changes and the cars were about as bland as you could imagine. That is, until you looked at the 929, a sedan with all the appointments you’d expect a Mazda to have. The performance of this car is an exception, and the car has still managed to hold up well even by today’s standards (via Cars.com).
Mazda cars from this era have depreciated quite hard across the board, but the 929 was hit especially hard. Which means that you can snag a stellar deal on one for a fraction of the price. The car offers great handling, exceptional off-the-line performance, and a reasonably luxurious interior drivers can’t go wrong with.
