Price as Tested $25,499

Sharp redesign of stodgy predecessor with Land Rover LR3 overtones. 3.2-liter, 230 hp, VTEC V6 is sufficient. Multiple airbags, ABS, traction control, Intuitive dash. Conveniently small overall, but decent back seat and fair trunk thanks to outside spare on side-hinged door. Obvious off-road capabilities. Capable in snow and ice with locking 4WD, hill-holder and hill descent. Competitive price.


Mileage only average (18-23), cloth upholstery feels fragile for the kind of use this will probably get. Back door hinged on curb side hinders loading.


Grandson of Geo Tracker has grown up well. Worthwhile alternative to CR-V and RAV4 despite poorer mileage.
