TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2013 Dodge Journey is a clever tweener, with three rows of seats if you need, and manageable size all the time--at a very reasonable base price. The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander is an enjoyable, well-equipped vehicle in top-of-the-line GT form; but value-conscious families have plenty of better (and fresher) choices.
