The X1 isn't sold in America, though the last-generation Toyota Highla...I mean, GLK will be in this year's DSCOTY, just not in this category. I stuck with my Terrain/Equinox vote. I really think these are the best mainstream cars GM North America has built in...well pretty much forever.

Like i said in the previous thread, the terrain's engine is built for economy, not for fun, but it does have decent looks (at least in the front). I went for Mazda, however.

I think the GLK looks exactly like the old Toyota Highlander.

I reiterate my vote for the Equinox/Terrain, though the equinox is my pick because I think it looks far less stupid than the GMC.

I may have to redo this segment again. I skipped the Hyundai Tucson, and it's all-new for 2010.

Allright, sorry guys, but I forgot the 2010 Hyundai Tucson which was too significant to leave out as it's all-new (and pretty sexy for an SUV if I might say so myself). I'm sure many of you may want your votes changed, so just let me know what you voted for originally, and what you want it changed to and I'll take care of it. Sorry I've been a bit sloppy with this category.

So back to the SUVs, I really, really want to vote the Tucson, but I still prefer the butch looks of the Terrain.

Done.

Funnily enough, I went out to see my girlfriend after editing this thread, and saw the new Tucson on the road. It looks even better in reality.

The Mazda is gorgeous, I always stare when one drives by . . . and I hate this segment.

Voted for the Hyundai, which i seem to find myself doing a lot lately. My order of preference here would be:

1) Hyundai Tuscon. Far and away the best looking to me, efficient powertrain, killer warranty, friendly dealers....
2) CR-V. My mom's got one, it's fantastic, but it's quite bland next to the new Tucson. Sure is nice to drive though, if you're not in a hurry.
3) Mitsubishi Outlander. Mainly for the torque-vectoring AWD system in the GT model.

the Evil Empire twins don't interest me, and I'm not sold on the CX-7.

I'm changing my vote from the GM twins to the Tucson. I just feel it's a better car, if not the best in the segment.

After looking at this again, I'd like to change my vote to the Tuscon.

I saw one yesterday on the road (test drive it seems) and it really caught my attention.
