Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Acura RDX is redesigned for 2019.The Technology package is the sweet spot for the 2019 RDX. In addition to this package's leather upholstery and premium audio, it adds navigation, parking sensors and additional driver assistance features. We recommend the all-wheel-drive variant for those drivers looking for improved handling and enhanced traction.

Pros
Sharp steering and handling
Roomy cabin and cargo area
Well-trimmed cabin

Cons
Options are bundled solely into packages
No choice of powertrain

The first RDX to be entirely designed and constructed in the United States, the third-generation 2019 model is larger than the outgoing car in nearly every respect.

Pros
Content rich,
torque-vectoring agility of AWD model,
quiet interior.

Cons
Tight rear headroom,
10-speed needs a moment to think,
touchpad infotainment controls require familiarization.

The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Diesel engine is no longer available.Newly standard safety equipment.Slightly revised packages and options.

Pros
Turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is quite powerful
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Stable and precise handling

Cons
Smaller cargo area compared to most competitors
Wallet-friendly base L trim is special-order only
The base engine doesn't feel very lively
Interior materials quality is disappointing considering the price

Driver-assistance features find their way to the standard features list on the 2020 Equinox: automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlamps—all previously optional—are now on all models. Further to that point, adaptive cruise control is now included in the optional Driver Confidence II package. Elsewhere in the lineup, a Midnight Edition package is new on LT models which blacks out just about everything that can be blacked out, including the Chevy bow-tie logos. The 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine is no longer available.

Pros
Spry driving demeanor, relatively efficient for an SUV, plenty of space for people and cargo.

Cons
Base engine lacks power, infotainment display is tilted too far back, high price among compact SUVs.
