The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox is all about evolution—and the most striking changes are almost invisible, except at the gas pump. The 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid remains a solid, competitive entry among compact family SUVs and crossovers. Its fuel efficiency is superb, and the optional mechanical all-wheel drive sets it apart from any other AWD hybrid crossover.
