      Forester? Active collision avoidance system (eyesight) that none of the other CUVs have. For 30K, probably get the XT that actually is reasonably fast for the class to boot.

      Outback $26,000

      If they could hit under 24K with AWD and auto, it would fall just about...

      150HP (Neon, did have Mopar PCM, so probably a bit higher but never did get WHP numbers)
