4. 2013 Volkswagen Passat
Starting price: $20,845
Built in Chattanooga, Tenn., and aimed squarely at American families, the midsized Passat hits dads where they live with a combined 27 miles per gallon. It doesn't get the 37 mpg of the $5,000-more-expensive turbodiesel version, but a best-in-class 16 cubic feet of trunk space and a three-year, 36,000-mile maintenance plan aren't exactly consolation prizes.
