Hello all,

After 23 years with one Honda Accord,  I need to buy/ lease a new one. Any
recommendations re overall good cars for carrying kayaks/gear? To
provide a context:

Consumer Reports gives overall high marks to Honda Civic and Subaru
Impreza. Accords have become very large. More obvious choice for
kayaks, but with less good CR
reviews, is Subaru Outback.  Volvo wagon, another kayak friendly
choice,  is out of my price range.

I go for fuel efficiency, but videos of Prius with 17 ft kayak on top
did not inspire confidence.
