Best overall - Lincoln MkT
Price: $44,200 - $49,200
Gas mileage: 17 City / 23 Hwy

The Lincoln MkT's appearance may be controversial -- OK, so it looks like the happiest whale in the world -- but if you've got three or more people and a long road ahead of you, there's nothing better.

For starters, "roomy" doesn't begin to describe the interior. Then you can add in options like a panoramic sunroof, refrigerator and active cruise control, which allows you to follow the car ahead without touching the gas or brake pedals. Then, when you get where you're going, it parks itself.
