Quite simply, it is not all about SUVs and sedans. As Motor Trend explains, people with families often think they have to limit themselves to SUVs, big sedans and minivans. But, plenty of other vehicles out there actually do offer passenger space, cargo room and creature comforts. With this in mind, the magazine developed this list.

Toyota Prius V
This V version has more wiggle room than the regular Prius.

Subaru Outback
This wagon has accommodating interior, plus lots of cup holders, grocery bag hooks, cargo tie-downs and an underfloor cargo area.

Volkswagen Jetta
Though a compact, the Jetta has excellent passenger and cargo space.

Dodge Challenger
A family hauler? What? Yes, says Motor Trend, passengers will find plenty of legroom in the Challenger.

Volvo V60 Cross Country
Here’s a great station wagon that doesn’t feel like a station wagon.

Volvo V60
Big space and big fuel economy.

Chevrolet SS
This Chevy is sport and roomy.

Subaru Impreza Hatchback
Yes, this is a compact, but cargo space is plentiful.

Chevrolet Colorado
The back seat in this truck is surprisingly accommodating for passengers and their laptops and iPads, says Motor Trend.

Volkswagen CC
Three passengers fit in the back seat, and rear seats fold down for extra storage space when needed.

BMW 328d Wagon
Here’s a sport wagon with a high cool quotient.

Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
Still another VW, this one is small but mighty, with lots of cargo space.

Scion xB
This model is small outside, but quite roomy inside.

Ford Transit Connect
Motor Trend: “Hey, at least it’s not a minivan.”

Volvo XC70
Here’s another example of a station wagon rivaling an SUV.
