The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Strong, sturdy, and spacious, yet carlike in some ways, the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse offers a very appealing compromise. The 2010 Toyota Highlander's appeal has grown even more massive with the addition of a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine for base models.
