You may want a feature not found on this Forester or need more space, but pound for pound and dollar for dollar, the Forester is tough to beat.

It is the only crossover on this list with standard all-wheel drive. Consumer Reports awarded it a total score of 88 after its battery of tests. No other pick on this list comes close. And it's the only crossover here named by IIHS as a 2013 top safety pick plus, meaning it achieved the highest score in every crash test.

Its get-up-and-go comes from a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. Here, it's priced with a continuously variable transmission. It offers these standard features: seven air bags, backup camera, panoramic moon roof, and a six-speaker audio system with high-definition radio and iPod interface.
