Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

There’s a lot to like about the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox, even if the best configuration requires a careful hand on the order sheet.

Pros
Wide range of engine, trim choices
Comfortable interior
Good ride and handling
Gas engines provide solid performance

Cons
Diesel misses the mark
Advanced safety gear costs extra—too much extra
Some awkward design angles
9-speed automatic can feel confused
Deceptive base trim level

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox ranked #10 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Equinox has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Above-average fuel economy
Supportive, roomy seats
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Unimpressive cabin build quality
Below-average cargo capacity
Limited maneuverability in cramped spaces

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox stands out by bringing high-end luxury features and a couple of distinctive engines to this typically price-conscious class.

Pros
Three engines to choose from, including a fuel-efficient diesel
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Excellent handling characteristics

Cons
Interior materials quality is disappointing considering the price
The base gasoline and diesel engines don't feel very lively
Wallet-friendly base L trim is special order only
Smaller cargo area compared to most of its competitors

The 2020 GMC Terrain seats five people and is available in four trim levels: the base SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali. Optional diesel engine is no longer available.Updated suspension for Denali models intended to improve ride quality.Changes to standard and optional safety equipment.At the top of the Terrain range is the Denali, which receives unique styling cues and interior trim as well as most of the optional features from the above trim levels. A new optional Denali Premium package tops it all off with features such as ventilated front seats, adaptive cruise control and a surround-view parking camera system.

Pros
Comfortable and upscale interior
Optional 2.0-liter engine is efficient and powerful
Touchscreen interfaces are intuitive and easy to use

Cons
Price with options runs higher than average for the class
Disappointing base engine
Less cargo space behind the back seat than most competitors

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2020 GMC Terrain is a stylish crossover SUV that we wish had more standard safety gear.

Pros
Arresting style
Rides well
Denali feels almost luxurious
Good infotainment system

Cons
Annoying all-wheel-drive system
Thirsty engines
Active safety should be standard
Price escalates fast

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2020 GMC Terrain features an impressive set of standard safety features and a handsome cabin, but neither area is best in class. Add in moderate performance and a small cargo area, and the Terrain's spot in the bottom half of our compact SUV rankings is understandable.

Pros
Lots of standard advanced safety features
Considerable rear-seat legroom
Upscale, comfortable cabin
Good city mpg rating with base engine

Cons
Small cargo area behind back seat
Sleepy base engine
Above-average price for the class
