The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan targets vehicles like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, but outshines them with its sophistication. The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox is all about evolution—and the most striking changes are almost invisible, except at the gas pump.
