Car recommendations for Seattle
I've just accepted an offer at a company in downtown Seattle and will be relocating in a few weeks. My 1999 hand-me-downwn died last weekend and I'm really struggling to find a suitable replacement. Any help choosing a car would be greatly appreciated.
Here's my deal- I drive alot and like to go on long trips. I don't enjoy driving (old car didn't have cruise control), hate paying for gas(old car got 25 MPG) but I enjoy hiking and exploring new places on the weekends. If it's an extended weekend, my ass is on the road headed to the mountains. I've driven 12+ hours in a day(Portland to Banff) and have no qualms driving 5+ hours to a trail or park. To put it in perspective I've put 36k miles on my car these last two years with a 10 mile work commute.

Dependents: Eddie, my 3 year old golden doodle
Things I'm looking for: Cruise control/Autopilot, fuel efficiency, ease of parking in a city, and overall funness.
Cars I'm considering-Tesla Model 3 RWD (I'd take over the remainder of my uncle's loan at 649/mo 4k on the odo), Subaru Crosstrek, Toyota RAV4
