MotorWeek Comparison Test: SUV SHOOTOUT
Video Rating: 3 / 5
I guess reliability wasn’t? considered. Otherwise the Dodge and Chevy would be last.
AWD? V6 Equinox is the way to go. Call it a poor man’s X3 & Q5.
Not going to get a car from a company that needs tax payers money for a bailout.
extremely irresponsible and definitely? not trust worthy
You can’t go wrong w/ a? rear entertainment system
where the “F” is the Mitsubishi RVR GT! BS! ?
The Journey and Equinox is a lot? bigger than the rest they shouldn’t even be included in this test. Besides, bigger isn’t always better.
His car of choice; he owns a really large SUV, a Ford Flex. His Flex is somewhere in one? of these YouTube pages.
The Kia should have won..clearly it is the best looking out of all the SUV’s up there.
But I can see the Chevy winning it..it was clearly the best bargain up there?
Good? review! Thanks
What a shame…The Kia drives? terribly..looks great. Subaru forester is the best overall vehicle in the pack. If you include, visibilty, safety, handling, cargo capacity, clearance, superior awd system to the competitors etc…
Now, I’ve? never driven an Equinox, but I have driven plenty of Chevy’s sedans, and their interiors are terrible! Whenever I see a Chevy interior I have flashbacks of a Cobalt base– and throw up in my mouth.
The main problem with most of the not selected finalists, were that The Escape, Rav4, CRV, and Rogue are all very dated. They need their midproduction refresh, or a complete redo. And the equinox is the newest update other than the sportage. But you cant pit kia quality with a grain? of salt. Familywise The Equinox has the safety of onstar standard, and that interior is dead on sexy
Where’s the totally reliable best handling suv with the most advanced all wheel drive system? Mitsubishi outlander?
lack of credibility….who paid for this review.USA auto? association.
technically the equinox is in a whole other? segment, only this new generation is smaller, putting it amoung the cute-utes.
Hmmmm, good point.?
No, because these are not real SUVs, this is for soccer mom, and have no ability off road whatsoever. As the? mad said 8 out of 9 of them are front wheel drive… Don’t tarnish the likes of the 4Runner by comparing them these crossovers.
They should’ve brought the 4Runner in. I’m guessing that the only reason they didn’t is because it would? be unfair.
