The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
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 Volkswagen Tiguan targets vehicles like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, but outshines them with its sophistication.
