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

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.

Excellent outward visibility

Cons

Palpable engine noise and vibration

The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.

Pros
Brilliant interior flexibility
Good value even at top trim
Tidy interior
Rides well

Cons
Slow acceleration
A few too many details
Emergency braking only on EX and above
Pricey Touring trim

By:

Honda made some superficial and mechanical changes to the HR-V for the previous model year, but it doesn't make any significant updates to the 2020 lineup.

Pros
Impressive fuel economy,
outstanding cargo storage,
durable and well-built interior.

Cons
Buzzy engine sounds,
choppy ride on rough roads,
top features reserved for top model.
