The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevy Equinox draws closer to the Blazer in looks and mission. The 2021 GMC Terrain tacks away from truck-like function toward urbane utility. A recent Best Car To Buy winner, the 2021 Subaru Forester notches big wins in utility and safety as one of our most recommended crossover SUVs.
