Late 2010 and 2011 were years where car dealers and manufacturers all over the world saw how their sales terribly downgraded, and, were the lowest since 2009. New models arrived but perhaps it was the obvious economic downfall that affects people’s buying decisions. Who would want to buy a car when you have basic financial responsibilities that must be dealt with first? When a liter of fuel cost you bucks that were worth three meals? Really, there was more to be dealt with than purchasing a car back then.
You might have this car that you really liked back in 2012 but hadn’t got the chance to buy it due to financial circumstances. Good thing about the year 2014 is that you can now purchase your dream car at a far lesser cost.
Here are a few of the most “wanted” cars back in 2010 (onwards), their previous and recent prices as well as some of their quick specs.
The 2010 Audi A6
If you were to live a busy, luxurious life four years back, Audi A6 would probably be your first choice. It is big, elegant, spacious and versatile. Quattro, Audi's all-wheel drive system provides a classy, driving experience not to mention that this vehicle has built-in Bluetooth, iPad connection, satellite radio, sun roof and rain-sensing wipers.

2012 BMW X5
As one of the sportiest SUVs in market, its price around £60,000 can be considered as a fair cost but actually you can buy this vehicle for around £35,000 - £45,000, as used car. BMW X5 key features are a four-way lumbar support for front-seat, a spacious 7-seat capacity and a six-cylinder gas turbo.
2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

This car's hybrid 13-hp electric motor helps you save fuel. Among other things, its powerful moonroofs, leather seats and incredibly convenient highway performance aim to please you as you wish.
Luxury you say, now here comes Porsche. Porsche 911 was then a trend during the years of 2010-2012, and it still is a big deal this 2014. If you are a fan of big spy movies, you probably have seen this vehicle most of the times. It is the kind of car that is “normally” used by protagonists. With its A-pillar door, ever comfortable 2+2 seating layouts, seven-speed manual transmission, no doubt it is the first choice of those who are looking for elegant cars. This car is a hundred pound lighter than previous versions. Now they can be sold around £70,000 - £80,000.
