Pros
Good gas mileage
Solid handling capability
User-friendly infotainment system

Less passenger and cargo space than many competitors

The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Diesel engine is no longer available.Newly standard safety equipment.Slightly revised packages and options.

Pros
Turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is quite powerful
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Stable and precise handling

Cons
Smaller cargo area compared to most competitors
Wallet-friendly base L trim is special-order only
The base engine doesn't feel very lively
Interior materials quality is disappointing considering the price

Driver-assistance features find their way to the standard features list on the 2020 Equinox: automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlamps—all previously optional—are now on all models. Further to that point, adaptive cruise control is now included in the optional Driver Confidence II package. Elsewhere in the lineup, a Midnight Edition package is new on LT models which blacks out just about everything that can be blacked out, including the Chevy bow-tie logos. The 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine is no longer available.

Pros
Spry driving demeanor, relatively efficient for an SUV, plenty of space for people and cargo.

Cons
Base engine lacks power, infotainment display is tilted too far back, high price among compact SUVs.

By going transverse-engined the X1 has become technically less distinctive, but more useful in the real world.This is the second-generation BMW X1. The smallest BMW SUV. And this time around there’s been a big change. It’s based not on the natively rear-drive platform of the last one, but on the same front-drive/4WD setup as the 2 Series Active Tourer MPV, Mini Countryman and so-on.

Pros
Performance,
chassis and space,
much-improved style

Cons
Not cheap,
interior a bit old-feeling,
slightly brittle ride

"The BMW X1 is an economical, practical and good-to-drive compact SUV that’s better-looking than the model it replaced"There are two petrol engines to choose from, a 138bhp three-cylinder, 1.5-litre petrol engine is offered in the front-wheel drive X1 sDrive18i, while the sDrive20i sits on the next rung of the ladder with a 2.0-litre, 189bhp engine, and the four-wheel drive xDrive20i sits above that. The latter is a quick car, reaching 62mph from rest in just over seven seconds, although its fuel economy can't match the less expensive model.

PROS
Very good to drive
Cheap to run
Practical

CONS
Expensive to buy
Baffling list of optional extras
Basic model is two-wheel-drive only

By:

The BMW X1 is a fun-to-drive and well-built alternative to the likes of the Volvo XC40 and Audi Q3.

Pros
Enjoyable to drive
High-quality interior
Decent cabin space

Cons
A little noisy at speed
Limited smartphone mirroring
Alternatives have bigger boots
