The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
If cargo space isn't a big concern, the 2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara packs a little more off-road capability than some of its crossover kin. 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.
