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 2017 BMW X4 is an alternative approach to tall-riding SUVs, if you can even call it that.The 2017 BMW X4 is a nice thing. Describing it any further requires a little understanding and a break with conventional rules.It's not a coupe, and it's not much of an SUV. It's not a tall wagon, and the X4 certainly isn't much of a sedan.
Instead, it doubles down on the recipe that BMW tested with the bigger X6 and takes an existing SUV and tapers its roofline for a more interesting look and less interior space. In this case, the donor is the more upright X3, and the X4 is fashioned to be a direct rival to the Range Rover Evoque, Porsche Macan, and even the Lincoln MKC.

Pros
A seductive roofline
M40i is a true performance vehicle
Sticky handling
Base engine is plenty quick

Cons
Cargo and rear passenger space is compromised
Thick rear haunches
Not quite a Macan Turbo competitor

The 2017 BMW X4 ranks 13 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 BMW X4's strong engine options and sporty driving dynamics make it a great performer among luxury compact SUVs, but competitors offer more interior and cargo space, as well as higher predicted reliability scores.

Pros
Potent engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Accurate steering

Cons
Cramped back seats
Class-trailing cargo capacity

You might already know that sitting up high and having a commanding view of the road can be a great thing. So if you're looking for a luxury SUV that gives you that sense of security along with a sleek design and strong performance, the uniquely styled 2016 BMW X4 is an interesting alternative.
Mid way through last year the xDrive35i model was replaced by the more performance-oriented M40i model. For all 2017 models, wireless phone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot are added to the options list, while the upgraded iDrive interface included with navigation has been updated. Finally, the steering wheel included in the optional M Sport package has a new design

Pros
Strong performance and good fuel economy from its two available engines
High-quality cabin looks and feels expensive
Comfortable ride quality despite its sporty nature
Responsive handling bettered only by pricier sport-tuned rivals
High-performance M40i trim level is a rarity for the segment.

Cons
Low rear seat reduces comfort relative to the X3 and most competitors
Small cargo area for a vehicle in this class
Rearward visibility is compromised by sloping roofline
Costs more than a similarly equipped X3 which offers more room inside
Some controls can be difficult to learn
Adaptive cruise control doesn't perform as well as those of rivals.
