One of the very first crossovers on the market, the Forester earned a stellar reputation for durability. That still holds true on even the newest models because Subaru sticks to the same flat-four cylinder engine and all-wheel-drive combination that works so well.

Surprise! The Equinox is Car and Driver‘s number one midsize choice, due to a mix of data from JD Power and Consumer Reports, as well as their own successful long-term road tests. Chevy’s mid-size crossover does look good, and the interior is attractive and logically laid out. Comfort is high on the list of reviewer’s pluses, and the seats are especially comfortable, with a great view of the road.
