7 cars for moms to escape the minivan rut

Toyota Venza XLE

  • Base price: $31,360
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 21 mpg
    • Highway - 27 mpg

Venza does a number of things well, and moms can appreciate its versatility. It's priced here with the fuel-efficient 181-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed driver-shiftable automatic transmission ushers power to the front wheels.

Even when carrying five in its roomy, comfortable cabin, it still has plenty of cargo space behind the second-row seat.

Venza earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's top scores in its crash tests.

Among its serious mom-has-to-have features are a backup camera and power rear liftgate. Other standard gear: seven air bags, reclining rear seats, leather-trimmed seating, and a six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and iPod interface.
