10 Family Cars You'll Still Look Cool In

Stocks in this article: TMGMHMC

7. Subaru Forester
MSRP: $22,195

KBB didn't just put the Forester at the top of its list of all-wheel-drive carsl, it placed five Subarus in the Top 5 spots of its all-wheel-drive Top 10.

The Outback ($23,495), Legacy ($20,295), Impreza ($17,895) and XV Crosstrek ($21,995) all scored high marks with KBB, but all managed to limbo beneath its $25,000 cutoff.

Still, you can't ask for a better investment. A 10-year-old Forester still has more than 25% of its original value. The newer models have even reverted to the boxy wagon look of their predecessors, while retaining the standard all-wheel-drive for Bohemian Bourgeois parents trying to balance shuttle runs to lacrosse practice with trips to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. Those combined 28 miles per gallon beats the 2013 model's 24 mpg and its interior is bigger than the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape, though its 34 cubic feet of cargo space is on the low end. Subaru's added Bluetooth connectivity and rearview camera to all its models and beefed up the options on its pricier trims, which means a power liftgate, voice-activated GPS and X-Mode engine control that provides additional traction on inclines and wet roads.
