The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
With some innovative cargo solutions and tough off-road ability, the 2010 Suzuki Equator is a good match for weekend active types and busy hobbyists. The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is a more road-friendly solution for those who need occasionally heavy-hauling ability.
