The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's an easy call among crossovers: the 2013 Kia Sorento has the right features, the right fuel economy, and the right size. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 excels at mass-market talents like gas mileage and interior room--but for turbocharged fun in a crossover, you'll have to look elsewhere.
