The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The uniform may be military-grade, but the GMC Terrain's softer side shows up in its excellent four-cylinder gas mileage and Denali luxury. The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.
