6. 2012 Kia Sorento
In its deathmatch with the RAV4 and Honda's CR-V, the Sorento's standard features including heated mirrors, satellite radio, Bluetooth, wood trim and stability and traction control are handy weapons. None, however, is as powerful as its third row of seating, which the competition lacks. It's a little snug back there, but young children and the occasional adult fit with ease. When the seats are down, the Sorento offers 72 cubic feet of cargo space. Combine that with 32 miles per gallon on the highway and you have one serious contender for American families' affections.
