Subaru Outback

  • Fuel economy: 21 City, 28 Hwy
  • Base price: $23,495

The Outback is a member of the same wagon-on-stilts family as the Audi AllRoad. The new version is bigger than Outbacks of the past, which has been a turn-off for some loyalists, but it comes with the welcome benefit of added interior space.

Plus, the Outback is also more fun to drive than most crossover SUVs.
