Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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

The 2018 BMW X4 ranked #10 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the BMW X4 has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 19 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful engines
Agile handling
Standard all-wheel drive
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Small rear seats
Poor cargo capacity

By:

The 2018 BMW X4 xDrive28i is already a potent little performer and will satisfy the majority of drivers. Almost all of the features from the range-topping M40i are available as options, so you won't be missing much other than the overabundance of power.

PROS
Powerful yet efficient engine choices
Interior quality well represents the luxury class
Ride quality is smooth yet handling is sporty

CONS
Rearward visibility is compromised
Cargo capacity is much smaller than rivals
Limited rear-seat space

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 BMW X4 takes today’s trend toward swoopier SUVs and packages it with a roundel up front. It’s entertaining and a looker, but not all that practical.

Pros
Compelling shape
Exciting performance from M40i
Well-equipped at base trim level
Excellent 8-speed automatic

Cons
Pricey at more than $48,000 to start
$2,000 for CarPlay? Really?
Rear seat head room is compromised
Cargo area is oddly shaped
