Chevrolet has given its three-row Traverse a light refresh for the 2021 model year that includes revised exterior styling and a host of new standard driver-assistance features. Among them are automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlamps. An 8.0-inch display inside the gauge cluster is now an available tech option, and new upholstery designs dress up the interior.

Spacious cabin,
peppy acceleration,
fuel efficient powertrain.

CONS
Big blind spots toward the rear,
plasticky interior parts,
most appealing options cost extra.

Mercedes-Benz has given the GLC coupe a bevy of updates for the 2020 model year. The headlights, grille, and bumpers have been revised, and some new color and wheel options are available. Within the cabin, a larger touchscreen has been added, and it governs Mercedes-Benz's new infotainment system. Under the hood, there's a new turbocharged engine that provides 14 more horses than the previous powerplant. Also, the list of available driver-assistance features has been expanded.

Pros
Smooth handling, rakish exterior design, extensive range of standard equipment.

Cons
Less cargo space than competitors, curved roofline diminishes second-row headroom, fuel economy trails that of some rivals.
