Edmunds.com rating: 4.0 Stars based on 89 reviews

The Terrain SLE comes standard with the 1.5L turbo Engine. The 2.0L turbo is available as an upgrade. The 7" Infotainment system (Information + Entertainment) is a nice size, compared to other compact suv's, and comes with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Heated seats is also available as an upgrade but the heated steering wheel is not.

If heated seats is a must for you, consider the "Driver Convenience Package". The package also turns the drivers seat into 8-way power adjustable plus power lumbar. To round off the upgrade, dual-zone automatic climate control is added with roof-mounted side rails and remote start.
