I have a 150lb Great Dane and a 60lb Doberman. For short rides, I drive a 2009 Subaru Impreza with the back seat down and a barrier to keep the dogs in back. They have plenty of space, could easily fit a third dog, but it isn't super safe to have dogs loose which is why I tend to only use it for shorter trips, and because my Doberman will annoy my Dane. For longer trips, I have a 2007 Volvo XC90. I have a Vario barrier and gate in the cargo area for my Dane, and the Doberman sits in the middle seat with a barrier between the middle and front seats. I could fit a 36" crate in either car to contain my Doberman, but I haven't due to visibility issues and because it would force my Dane too close to the slanted hatchback in the Subaru. Both cars have been pretty good and reliable with decent gas mileage considering they are both 4WD/AWD.
