The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
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 Tacoma is a workhorse truck that gives a little more space and capability than a true compact, yet offers decent fuel efficiency and a low price.
