TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Jeep Wrangler remains a choice like no other—and it's the only true convertible in which you can go off-roading. If you have a lot of gear to haul to tough-to-reach places, the 2010 Nissan Xterra is a good choice for weekend adventurers. Though the 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser is a bit of a one-trick pony—clearly emphasizing off-road ability to the detriment of on-road comfort—its unmistakable style and agreeable on-road performance make it worth considering even for weekend recreation types.
