TCC’s Bottom Line
Active safety gear is standard for 2020 models, making the base Chevy Equinox L finally worth a look. The 2020 GMC Terrain is a stylish crossover SUV that we wish had more standard safety gear. The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.
