The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
A rakish crossover with a 260-horsepower four on tap, the Kia Sportage reboots its image on a few levels all at once. The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox is a good, affordable choice for cost-conscious families, but it doesn't skimp on comfort, safety, or the latest connectivity features.
