The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Kia Telluride earns our Best Car To Buy nod with its excellent features, warranty, space, and style. The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder nudges back into relevancy in the crowded three-row crossover class. The 2021 Toyota Highlander learned new tricks to keep us entertained on the road, when we’re not asleep in the back anyway.
