5 Great Cars for Mom in 2013

Honda CR-V
Starting MSRP:
$22,795 recently found that more mothers bought this crossover sport utility vehicle than any other model last year -- not surprising given that the CR-V and the rival Toyota RAV4 are basically the gold standard of mom-mobiles.

Crossovers such as the CR-V and RAV4 are perfect for families with kids.

Built on a car chassis instead of the truck platform used by large SUVs, crossovers combine an automobile's smooth ride and good gas mileage with a big vehicle's roomy interior and "high-above-the-pavement" road view.

The CR-V can comfortably accommodate four to five occupants and 37.2 cubic feet of cargo when the vehicle's rear seats are in use. Or you can fold the back seat flat to create a cavernous 70.9 cubic feet of storage space.

Despite its generously sized cabin, the CR-V is still small enough to make parking or backing up fairly easy. Front-wheel-drive versions of the vehicle also get a good 23 mpg/city and 31 mpg/highway.

In the safety department, the CR-V comes standard with a backup camera and other protective features, while NHTSA and the IIHS give the model top crash-test marks.
