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.

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 Nissan Pathfinder offers good space for seven in a composed, quiet environment and it manages a some decent capability for off-road duty and towing.
The Nissan Pathfinder mid-size people mover gets a modest refresh for 2017 after its 2014 redesign.
Changes to this seven-passenger crossover SUV include new front and rear fascias that create a more truck-like look, engine improvements, a new infotainment system, and new active safety features.

Pros
Clever folding second row
Spacious interior
Composed, quiet ride
Calm cabin
Controlled handling

Cons
Far from a sports car
Drab interior materials
Occasional lag in power delivery

The Nissan Pathfinder receives substantial updates for 2017. These include a more powerful engine, greater towing capacity, a slight front and rear redesign, a larger standard touchscreen, additional feature content, and revised steering and suspension for a sharper driving experience.

Pros
V6 engine provides strong acceleration and respectable fuel economy
User-friendly touchscreen interface comes standard on every trim
Easily accessed third-row seat
Robust towing capacity.

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity and small item storage
Less third-row space than some rivals
Platinum trim level's ride quality might be too firm for some drivers
Automatic emergency braking safety feature available on top trim only.

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder ranks 16 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. Despite a significant refresh for the 2017 model year, the Nissan Pathfinder ranks near the bottom of the midsize SUV class. While it can adequately do everything it was designed to do, it fails to impress in most areas.

Pros
Strong V6 engine
Intuitive infotainment system
Good overall cargo space

Cons
Rough ride quality
Lackluster interior design
Dull driving dynamics
Unimpressive passenger space
