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.

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
