Volvo XC60 3.2
Volvo XC60 3.2
  • Base price: $34,350
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 19 mpg
    • Highway - 25 mpg

You almost have to expect a car list with safety as a key element to include a Volvo of some stripe. The XC60 received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest crash-test scores for the past three years.

A 240-horsepower 3.2-liter in-line six-cylinder engine delivers output to the front wheels.

Adding to the 3.2's base model, the Platinum version includes all manner of goodies, not the least of which are a power rear liftgate, front and rear parking sensors, and a backup camera.

Seating five, the interior is roomy and features popular amenities, such as navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity and an optional surround-sound audio system with iPod interface.
