Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi Q5 is certainly the segment's most modern offering, delivering a high degree of technology, comfort, and conservative style.
The 2018 Audi Q5 is a five-seater compact crossover SUV that's all-new for 2018 and squares off against competitors like the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and the Jaguar F-Pace.

Pros
High-tech interior
Terrific ride quality
Refined powertrain
Standard all-wheel drive
Good interior packaging

Cons
Styling is derivative
Tech requires acclimation
Not particularly sporty
Some rivals have more personality

The 2018 Audi Q5 ranked #1 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Audi Q5 has a score of 8.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Long list of standard features
Lively acceleration
Spacious cabin

Cons
Above-class-average starting price

By: 
usnews.com

Entering its second-generation, the 2018 Audi Q5 is all-new. It now offers more power from the standard engine, a revised all-wheel-drive system, more available technology features and crisp, new styling.

PROS
All-new chassis helps deliver smoother ride than before
Quiet, comfortable cabin features top-notch interior craftsmanship
All-wheel drive comes standard
Wide array of technology options

CONS
Diminished space for luggage behind rear seats
Only one engine offered

By:

The new Equinox is based on an all-new architecture that weighs about 400 pounds less than its predecessor. Chevrolet credits the weight saving to high-strength steel and other grams-add-up type measures, but the reality is that there's quite a bit less Equinox this time around. The 2018 Equinox shrinks, losing its "tweener" status, and is now much closer to the Honda CR-V in all four main dimensions. To Chevy's credit the interior dimensions are pretty much the same, with the small hit in cargo space mitigated by the large hidden storage area under the cargo floor.
The pricing disparity against its competition is a shame, because the Equinox is a compelling compact crossover SUV in virtually every other way. It looks great inside and out, offers good high-tech features, drives exceptionally well, will offer a diesel engine, and the promise of a high-horsepower version sounds fun. We just wish Chevy would take the cue from its competitors and broaden the availability of its advanced safety tech and add in active cruise as well.

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a needed step forward for the brand and a solid compact crossover.

Pros
Solid base engine
Denim-like fabric is surprisingly comfortable
Lighter, brighter, and smarter
A fuel-efficient turbodiesel coming

Cons
Still hard plastics abound
Not as fuel-efficient as some
Safety features reserved for top trims
Smaller rear cargo area

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is fully redesigned for 2018. It's slightly smaller overall compared to its predecessor, but the reduced weight combined with more efficient engines pay off at the pump.

Pros
Three engines to choose from, including a fuel-efficient diesel
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Expansive list of optional safety features
MyLink user interface is intuitive and easy to use

Cons
Smaller cargo area compared to most of its competitors
Base L trim is special order only
The 1.5-liter engine and its slow-shifting transmission don't feel very lively
