9. 2013 Nissan (NSANY) Altima
Starting price: $21,760
Perhaps the king of utilitarian family sedans, the Nissan Altima is trying to shake that image by offering a combined 33 miles per gallon. It's also been streamlined for 2013 with a sporty new exterior and is laden with a smattering of new toys to placate dads settled into a sedan existence.That 15.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity isn't a whole lot, but the cabin is quiet, the new tech features include satellite radio, Pandora (P), Bluetooth and hands-free texting, and safety options include blind-spot monitoring, a lane-departure warning system and a moving-object detector.
