Toyota RAV4
TCC's Overall Rating:
7.4
TCC's Bottom Line: Though it might wear a spare tire on its tail like the hard-core SUVs of yore, don't let that throw you off. The 2010 Toyota RAV4 is actually a practical, fuel-efficient choice for frugal families on the go.
Price: $23,535 (4-cyl. base with option)

Even in base four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive form the 2010 RAV4 is available with a third-row seat option for just $940 extra. You probably wouldn't expect it to be very roomy, but it's actually not so bad for occasional use. The four-cylinder RAV4 is also great on gas and is remarkably refined and comfortable, while being manageably sized for city-dwellers.

Kia Rondo
TCC's Overall Rating:
7.4
TCC's Bottom Line: You likely won’t be drawn to the 2010 Kia Rondo because of its looks, but you’re likely to see it in a different light if you do your research first.
Price: $19,795 (2009)

The Rondo probably isn't a vehicle you're going to fall in love with at first sight. It doesn't look like a minivan, which a lot of moms and pops are going to love, though from the outside it's either an especially homely-looking crossover, or an oddly tall wagon. But it's a vehicle that makes sense from the inside out: Take a look inside, especially when you're craving practicality, and you'll be hooked. The Kia Rondo has hinged rear doors, which make it easier to get into in a driveway but more difficult than a minivan—or the Mazda5—in a tight parking space.
