2010 Subaru Forester: It may not shine with the funky sheen of the Flex, but the five-seat Forester starts at $20,295 and has carlike dynamics our editors love, with the wagon body we need. The base versions of the Forester are a great bargain, especially if you can live with a manual transmission—it’s the pick of trannies, since Subaru sticks with an old-school four-speed automatic.

2011 Hyundai Sonata: One of our best-rated family sedans, the base Sonata with a manual transmission slots in under $20,000--and comes with power features, cruise control, a spacious interior, elegant styling, and features like XM satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port for your personal audio player. It also tops many of its four-door friends with great fuel economy, which means it keeps saving on a fill-up by fill-up basis.

2010 Nissan Versa: Sometimes, you just need a car. It doesn't have to be pretty, but it needs to have a long life ahead of it. A brand-new Nissan Versa S isn't a base model, but it's priced like one--it's priced like a used Honda Fit, actually, and this year the Versa S adds the safety gear we've been missing, like stability control and ABS. The MSRP on a Versa S is just $13,350, and discounts are frequent, unlike the Fit.
