Best for small families
Toyota Avalon

Base price range: $27,000 to $36,000
Typical five-year ownership cost: $38,000

If you're after a classic sedan, the Avalon's elegant interior, comfortable ride and above-average fuel economy (28 miles per gallon on the highway) are reason enough to give it a serious look. The fact that it has the best resale value of any large sedan makes it even more attractive. After five years this car is still worth 54% of its original sticker price.
