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

For 2019, the Mazda CX-3 receives a refresh that includes new exterior touches, a very slight increase in engine output, redesigned seats, and front and rear center armrests. Some features have also been shuffled between trim levels, and advanced safety features are available across the lineup.

Pros
Attractive and comfortable interior
Engaging driving experience
Impressive fuel economy for a crossover
Good selection of available driver aids and active safety features

Cons
Suspension tuning may be too firm for some
Cramped rear seat
Below-average cargo space

The 2019 Mazda CX-3 fails to launch in the crossover-SUV space race.

Pros
Great, simple exterior shape
Good standard touchscreen
Standard advanced safety features
Competitive fuel economy

Cons
Cramped rear seat
Not much cargo room with seats up
Finicky infotainment system
Small safety demerit

the 2019 CX-3 retains its trapezoidal bar grille but has a new inner grille design. New lower chrome trim on the sides complements the carryover side-sill chrome slat, while the headlights carry on unchanged. The rear lights, however, see a new design that’s more similar to those in front, with a round eye accented by straight lines.Inside, Mazda replaced the prior cable-operated parking brake with an electronic unit with an automatic hold feature and incorporated it into the center console next to the rotary infotainment dial. That change opens up some real estate on the console, and the mode selector has been relocated behind the shifter’s PRND indicator, the previous gloss-black surround is gone, the cupholders are repositioned, and the armrest gets a comfier makeover.

Mazda says the front seats, which can be ordered with full leather on top trims for the first time, have been completely redesigned to be wider and more comfortable. The dashboard wears new faux-suede appliqués, the climate-control dials feature flashy red accents, and the rear seats have a new fold-down center armrest with cupholders. Together, these small changes add up to a tidier and classier look.
