A new best vehicle list has just been released, but this one has a different take on things. It is AAA's best cars for dogs.

In the luxury category the BMW 3 Series Wagon gets the nod because of the rubber mats and sturdy dividers that can keep a dog comfortably confined to the cargo area.

In the active lifestyle division the Subaru Forester is listed. Among the pluses are a huge cargo capacity and plenty of tie-down points to secure a kennel.

In the economical category the Nissan Cube was one of two selected because its interior is surprisingly roomy and accommodating for even larger breeds.
