7 roomy cars for Black Friday shopping

Toyota Rav4 LE
Toyota Rav4 LE
  • Price: $23,300
  • Maximum cargo space: 73.4 cubic feet
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 24 mpg
    • Highway - 31 mpg
    • Combined - 26 mpg

The Rav4 comes pretty well equipped in its base version, with all of the required equipment. Although stepping up to the XLE costs more, it doesn't sweeten the pot enough to make it worthwhile.

At 38.4 cubic feet, Rav4 tops the list for available cargo space with all the seats in place. Only the Ford Flex and Dodge Grand Caravan on this list have more maximum cargo room when the Rav4's split, reclining, fold-flat rear seat is folded.

Even in base LE model, Rav4 comes with a 6.1-inch touch-screen display and Toyota's Entune Audio system with six speakers and voice recognition. A backup camera and seven air bags are also standard.

A 176-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission turns the front wheels.
