The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.4
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. Though it might wear a spare tire on its tail like the hard-core SUVs of yore, don't let that throw you off. The 2010 Toyota RAV4 is actually a practical, fuel-efficient choice for frugal families on the go.
