9. 2012 Chrysler 300
MSRP: $28,670

It's a full-sized sedan without the full-sized cost. Even the bare-bones rear-wheel-drive model comes with a 3.6-liter, 292-horsepower V6 engine, eight-speed automatic transmission, touchscreen communications and entertainment console and one year of Sirius-XM ( SIRI) satellite radio. That's all great for the driver, but a cavernous interior, 16 cubic feet of trunk space and a 60/40 folding rear seat and mileage that tops out at 31 miles per gallon on the highway is great for the whole brood.
