The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Strong, sturdy, and spacious, yet carlike in some ways, the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse offers a very appealing compromise. The 2009 Ford Flex is one of the most stylish new crossovers, with great passenger room and more features than some minivans.
