The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercury Mariner and Mariner Hybrid have aged well, remaining attractive, capable, and fuel-efficient with more than a little style. The 2010 Hyundai Tucson doesn't quite take the title of best small crossover, but it handily grabs "most improved" honors.
