The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 GMC Terrain looks bold and edgy on the outside, but it’s a softy inside, with a comfortable, refined cabin and excellent fuel economy. The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan feels refined and sophisticated, but it's not especially rewarding to drive.
