Kia Rondo
Base price: $16,395 - $20,195
Mileage: 26 mpg Hwy, 19 mpg City

The Rondo doesn't look like much, but there's an amazing amount of utility stuffed into that little potato-shaped body. You can even get a reasonable set of third-row seats, believe it or not.

In many ways, the Rondo seems like a plainer looking Mazda5 with a better warranty (5-year, 60,000 mile, bumper-to-bumper, 10-year 100,000 mile, powertrain) and without the love-'em-or-hate-'em sliding doors.

The Mazda's a bit more sporty to drive, but the Rondo is not bad at all. For more power, the Rondo is also available with an optional 185-horsepower V6, but that would certainly raise your fuel consumption.
