7. 2013 Ford Fusion
Starting price: $21,900
Ford's midsize just got an overhaul that makes it look like anything other than the faceless utilitarianmobiles this category is accustomed to.With a sporty new exterior, keyless entry keypad, its own app, Microsoft's (MSFT) SYNC entertainment and communications system (that also doubles as a Wi-Fi hotspot, a blind-spot alert system, adaptive cruise control and Hill Start Assist that holds the brake when starting on an incline, there are a ton of extraordinary features in what's supposed to be Ford's most ordinary car. Its combined 28 miles per gallon and capless fuel tank are also lovely, but its availability as a 47 miles per gallon hybrid or plug-in electric vehicle also give dad some options.
