7 roomy cars for Black Friday shopping

Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium
Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium
  • Price: $26,795
  • Maximum cargo space: 71.3 cubic feet
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 24 mpg
    • Highway - 30 mpg
    • Combined - 26 mpg

A shoo-in for this list, the Outback is the only vehicle among these picks that the Insurance Institute named a "2013 top safety pick plus," meaning it aced all of its crash tests. Moreover, it has 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space with its 60/40 split/folding second-row seat in place. It's also the only pick on this list with standard all-wheel drive. In its 2.5i Premium model as priced here, it comes with heated front seats, heated outboard mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer.

A continuously variable transmission, or CVT, sends output from the 173-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine to the wheels. The flat design of the engine gives the Outback a lower center of gravity, improving handling and stability.

A six-speaker audio system with 4.3-inch color display is standard.
