1. BMW X3MSRP: $39,600 Because nobody's buying a BMW for seating or cargo capacity, let's get right down to it: This is a comfortable, connected rolling office with child seating. The trunk has a 12-volt power outlet. The navigation system is cloud-connected so you can plot out a trip before you even get into the car. A 9-inch touchscreen controls the navigation and music once you're inside, while a Mobile Office function enables text-to-speech readings of email, calendar entries and notes. Throw in 240 horsepower under the hood, 80 gigabytes of hard drive space for family entertainment and brakes that charge the battery when you pump them and you have one of the best features a working parent can ask for: The ability to work from wherever. -- Written by Jason Notte in Portland, Ore. >To contact the writer of this article, click here: Jason Notte. >To follow the writer on Twitter, go to http://twitter.com/notteham. >To submit a news tip, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
