TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Chevrolet HHR has love-it-or-hate-it styling, but it should appeal to those who want good cargo capability in an economical ride. The 2010 Ford Transit Connect is unique in the market. Small-business owners will find it far more fuel efficient and maneuverable than a full-size van. The range of optional custom fittings lets users tailor it to their tasks. Ideally suited for a wide range of users with the common need to haul stuff, the 2010 Honda Element is a surprising fun and fuel-efficient.
