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 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

Capable of over 50mpg, the Hyundai Kona Hybrid is the pick of the range if your budget doesn't stretch to the fully electric Kona.

PROS
Cheap to run
Plenty of equipment
Clear infotainment setup

CONS
Small boot
Sluggish acceleration
Optional safety features

By:

Three trim levels will be available for the Korean petrol-electric SUV in Great Britain, though we're still waiting for the new model to be confirmed for Australia.In the UK, the Kona Hybrid will be offered in three trim levels – SE, Premium and Premium SE. All versions team a 1.6-litre direct-injection 'GDi' four-cylinder petrol engine with a 32kW/170Nm electric motor and 1.56kWh battery, quoting system outputs of 103.7kW (@5700rpm) and 265Nm (@4000rpm).Hyundai claims the front-driven hybrid crossover will accelerate from 0-100 in 11.2 seconds (11.6 for Premium and Premium SE), and hit a top speed of 115mph (185km/h).
