10. Volvo XC60

MSRP: $34,350

Volvo killed off the last of its trademark wagons a few years back, which is why it started affixing that XC label to everything remotely wagonlike. The XC60 is Volvo's base crossover and comes with all the safety features parents love, including a five-star crash safety rating, low-speed collision avoidance system, pedestrian detection and a driver-attention monitor that issues a warning if the driver appears to be drowsy at the wheel. But knowing you aren't the average mom or dad -- just a free-living cosmopolitan urbanite riding out the next 18 years until you can renew your theater membership and drinking engagements -- Volvo has thrown in Sirius XM ( SIRI) satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth hands-free communications and other fun little toys as distractions. The good times haven't ended: They're just on an inconvenient break.
