4. 2012 Subaru Outback
No, the Outback doesn't automatically lock up and cut off power to the ignition when you try to take it to a football game instead of a lacrosse practice or soccer match. Contrary to its upmarket suburban reputation, the Outback is ideal for a morning of tailgating. Its standard removable cargo tray keeps messes confined and is easy to hose down once you've dropped off your crew and headed home. Its 71.3 cubic feet of cargo also means there's plenty of room for dips, salsas, sauces and plenty of other tailgate-ready items worth making a mess with.
