Once again.........good luck when you finally get behind the wheel.
Curious what happened to the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler in the competition?
"The Forester fought off stiff competition from Acura's new MDX
, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport
, and staples such as the Toyota RAV4
. And that's not to mention the rest of the competition: Audi's Q5
, now featuring the very impressive diesel TDI variant; BMW's X1
; the relatively diminutive Buick Encore
; the refreshed Dodge Durango
and Jeep Cherokee;
Hyundai's long-wheelbase Santa Fe
; Kia's new Sorento
; and oddballs and outliers in the form of the MINI Paceman
and the Mitsubishi Outlander
. Motor Trend editors evaluated vehicles with attention to six specific criteria: advancement in design, efficiency, engineering excellence, performance of intended function, safety and value."
