The Car Connection's Take

7.8
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 GMC Terrain is a compact crossover with a little more room than some of its rivals, which pays off in big comfort and better hauling capabilities.
