4. 2013 Toyota(TM) RAV4
A longtime favorite of the grocery-getting and soccer-shuttling classes, the RAV4 finally got a facelift to make it look less like its competitors. That exterior should be the least of a driver's concerns, though.
There are 38 cubic feet of cargo space -- 74 with the rear seats folded flat -0 that's now accessible through a power liftgate that replaces the RAV4's longtime, swingout side-hinged cargo door. Other add-ons including a backup camera, blind-spot warning system, dual-zone climate control and reclining rear seats make an already popular crossover an even more formidable opponent.
