Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Comfortable and upscale interior
Optional engines offer efficiency and power
MyLink user interface is intuitive and easy to use
Extensive list of optional safety features

Cons
Midrange trims offer fewer standard safety features than competitors
Base 1.5-liter is disappointing all around
Less cargo space behind the back seat than most competitors
Price with options runs higher than average for the class

The 2019 GMC Terrain is another contender for crossover shoppers’ consideration, but its high price and lack of active safety features keep it on the bench for now.

Pros
Handsome exterior shape
Composed ride
Tony Denali trim has luxury bona fides
Smooth 9-speed automatic
Apple CarPlay compatibility

Cons
Part-time all-wheel drive
Diesel adds thousands to bottom line
No more sliding second row
Active safety features cost extra, on all trims

The 2019 GMC Terrain ranked #11 in Compact SUVs. Currently the GMC Terrain has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Spacious seats
Smooth ride
Excellent fuel economy

Cons
Poor rearward visibility
Higher starting price than most competitors

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

Active safety functions
3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
Ride on standard air suspension
