The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
6.6
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. Value—not trend-setting design or class-leading performance—is the reason to keep the 2010 Kia Sportage on your list.
