11 of 11

Price: $43,650

Overview: XC is Volvo-speak for "Cross Country." It offers more ground clearance than some crossovers. There is a choice of two engine-based trim levels. Both are inline six-cylinder engines. A six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission is bolted to each. Generally, the interior is comfortable with plenty of headroom. Maximum cargo space is a whopping 72 cubic feet.

Specifics: A 3-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder in the T6 generates 281 horsepower. The EPA estimates fuel economy at 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, tilt-telescoping steering wheel, power accessories, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated outboard mirrors, leather seating and eight-way-power front seats.
