2022 GMC Terrain vs. Its Competition

2022 GMC Terrain
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Terrain is a near-twin to the Chevy Equinox, though the GMC gets a better transmission and has some nicer cues inside.

The Mazda CX-5 may not be all that spacious, but it’s fun to drive.

The Toyota RAV4 has butch looks and a thrifty hybrid—and a plug-in Prime hybrid, too.

It may show its age, but the Honda CR-V is a solid choice with a spacious interior and a new hybrid edition.

The Subaru Forester is our top choice as long as power isn’t a priority; it’s an excellent space-saver with safety scores that top the class.

Quick Specs
The 2022 GMC Terrain leans into urbane utility, and away from truck-like ruggedness.
The 2022 Chevy Equinox secures its passengers well but doesn’t stand out among snappier, techier crossover SUVs.
The 2021 Honda CR-V wins hundreds of thousands of wallets each year and it’s no surprise: it’s spacious, comfortable, efficient, and quiet.
The 2021 Mazda CX-5 crossover has some priorities out of order; it doles out fine handling while it delivers a skimpy back seat.
A recent Best Car To Buy winner, the 2021 Subaru Forester notches big wins in utility and safety as one of our most recommended crossover SUVs.
The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range.
