TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox has one of the most spacious, quiet, and versatile interiors among smaller crossovers, and it loads on the value. The 2016 Dodge Journey is a strong value among crossover SUVs, but it misses the mark for the tech-savvy and safety-conscious. The 2016 Kia Sorento grows a little bit larger, and grows up a lot.
