TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox is every bit as solid, spacious, and well-equipped as cost-conscious families could expect -- and far more quiet and refined than many other models without a luxury badge. The 2014 Dodge Journey offers three rows of seats in an easy-to-manage package, all for an affordable price. The 2014 Kia Sorento gets a quick fix for its minor flaws: they brighten the cabin and soften the ride.
