8. Subaru Outback
The Outback has been comfortable with its role as the upper-middle family ride of choice since it was a glorified Legacy wagon. Now it's an almost full-size crossover with roughly nine inches of ground clearance, 70 cubic feet of maximum cargo space and combined 27 miles per gallon that's practically in CR-V/RAV4/Sorento territory. Though it isn't always a must for summer vacation driving, the Outback's standard all-wheel drive is still the dealmaker for families who have to brave tougher conditions for the rest of the year. For cold-weather lacrosse parents, this basically is the minivan.
