Price: $19,595 (2007)
EPA Fuel Economy (City/Hwy): 19/25 mpg
Crash tests: Five stars frontal, five stars side

The car-based Tucson sport utility vehicle has safe handling, a good ride and a very roomy, comfortable interior, plus it’s tough enough to make it out on a rutted road to a summer camping trip, especially when equipped with the optional all-wheel drive. Electronic stability control, side-curtain airbags, and front seat-mounted side airbags are all standard.

Hyundai Elantra ranked #2 in 2006 and 2007 in the category of most fuel efficient sedans and most efficient non-hybrid mid-sized sedan.

The economical but well-equipped Elantra stands out as a good student choice for its roomy and comfortable interior and good gas mileage. Six airbags and Antilock Breaking System (ABS) are standard, and electronic stability control is available on the more expensive SE model.
