The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe makes premium gains with hybrid and turbo-4 power and a Palisade-like interior. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L performs on road and off, has lots of space, and competes with luxury brands in its top models. The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan compact crossover is spacious and comfortable, and also the league-leader in modesty,
