Ford Fusion

Base price: $21,900

Edmunds recommends the Fusion to obese drivers because the sedan comes standard with extra-long seat belts and a spacious front-cabin area.

"The Fusion is roomy on the inside -- and outside it's a great-looking car," Clarke says.

He and other experts believe Ford ( F) based the Fusion's exterior on Britain's Aston Martin superluxury brand, which the U.S. auto giant owned until 2007. "The Fusion definitely looks like a more-expensive car than your typical family sedan," Clarke says.

Fully redesigned for 2013, the Fusion comes standard with a 175-horsepower four-cylinder engine that's rated at 22 mpg/city and 34 mpg/highway. If that's not powerful enough for you, a 240-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged engine is available.
