If you have difficulty getting in and out of cars, this vehicle can be difficult for older people, or people with back or leg problems. The seats have a slight up turn on the edges and you have to lift yourself over them to get onto them. Driver observation is somewhat obscured by the thick frame posts on the corner of the windshield; make sure you check pedestrian traffic well before proceeding because the posts can obstruct your view of objects in those locations. Cargo area is narrow because of the wheel wells; but decent size. Engine accelerates well, and brakes stop very well. Like the back up camera, and blue tooth features. Overall we like the car.
If you are looking for a fast off the line vehicle, this is not for you. It has plenty of acceleration for a conservative driver and my gas mileage is consistently 28.5 for mixed driving. Cargo room is great, although fitting in 4 sets of golf clubs takes a bit of adjustment
I've had 2 Terrains....2012 & 2015. I've read the other reviews. I make 2200 mile roundtrips from home to Florida multiple times each year (average 6 roundtrips each year). This 4 cyl engine has plenty of power for acceleration and for running interstate speeds (or more!!). Economy? I have averaged 26-28 mpg running interstate speeds. This vehicle has more compartment room for the driver than the Colorado pickup I own....and I'm a big guy. The safety tests I've seen, show the Terrain in the top 3 always, for it's family/group. When I trade the '15, it will be for another Terrain. My only complaint....the '12 had a GREAT built-in GM navigation system. The '15 did not have this, so I paid big bucks to install an aftermarket system....it's terrible. So I bought a Garmin. No, I don't use my phone for navigation. These Terrains are awesome vehicles. Thank you GMC for this fine vehicle!!!!
