TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox is more refined and quiet than many of its competitors, while offering the versatility and value that a budget-conscious family would expect. The 2015 Dodge Journey is at once an alternative to minivans and large crossovers, with intelligent packaging and good value. The 2015 Kia Sorento gets a little better each year, and its combination of elegance, versatility, and value makes it a great pick for families.
