EDITOR WES RAYNAL: I like the way this new small crossover drives in both Chevrolet and GMC forms, since they're basically identical. I also like the looks of the GMC Terrain, which I know some people don't. I think it looks chunky and tough, and I like that. I think it's a nice contrast to the Chevy and gives customers more choice.

SENIOR EDITOR FOR NEWS BOB GRITZINGER: Though this styling could prove polarizing, I find very little here to warrant a comparison to the ugly Pontiac Aztek. To me, it's more like the Jeep Patriot--a soft-roader with a buff body--and its overall size versus a vehicle such as the Patriot helps absorb some of the overly brawny bits. Even the big, stacked front end is a reasonable look with the big GMC grilled taking up a large part of the real estate (unlike similar horizontal stacks on such models as the ill-fated Isuzu Ascender).
