It seems as though you are prepared to spend a bit more on gas with the v6... so what I suggest to you is make a strict budget limit, whether total selling price, or total monthly payment. And then narrow down from there

What you will arrive at essentially is deciding on (for the same money) an American car, with all the bells and whistles (v6, AWD, leather, Navigation etc..) versus a euro / Japanese one that is V4, FWD, and not as many bells and whistles.

Just remember, in the event you want to sell the car, 2,3 or more years from now, that American cars depreciate a lot more while foreign cars hold their value much better.
Good point about the resale value. I agree with the Japanese vs American comparison .. you will get more bells and whistles and more customizable options in an American car
