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

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.
