The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A new line of powertrains will help save fuel yet make the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe more appealing than ever. The 2010 Toyota Highlander's appeal has grown even more massive with the addition of a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine for base models.
