Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is a solid bet if you want a reasonably sized crossover SUV with plenty of backseat space. You can also upgrade to a powerful V6 engine, which is an unusual treat in this class. Let's see if this veteran player still has what it takes.

Pros
Backseat has plenty of space and slides/reclines for added comfort
Optional V6 engine provides quick acceleration
Interior stays quiet at speed
Rides smoothly on rough roads.

Cons
Four-cylinder version feels sluggish and real-world mpg falls short of EPA ratings
Less cargo space than some rivals
Quality of interior materials leaves something to be desired
Bluetooth audio isn't offered on L or LS.

The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is a solid compact crossover SUV. What it lacks in advanced powertrains, it makes up for in available tech.
The Chevrolet Equinox has struck the right chord for many compact crossover buyers. It offers a range of powertrains, including front- or all-wheel drive; it can be fuel efficient; and it's relatively large.

Pros
Inline-4 is frugal
Space is configurable for cargo or people
Plenty of power in V-6
Exterior style has been improved
Relatively good tech

Cons
No premium audio to speak of
Rear visibility is a challenge
Safety marks not quite top tier

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox ranks 5 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The Chevrolet Equinox was redesigned for the 2018 model year and sees some admirable improvements over the outgoing generation. It has a quality interior, plenty of standard features, and a good amount of cargo and passenger space. It rides and drives confidently but can be slow to get up to speed.

Pros
Plenty of standard features
Quality interior
Stable handling

Cons
Sluggish transmission

The 2018 Chevrolet Trax, Chevy’s smallest utility vehicle, is straightforward: it’s plain on the outside but practical inside, not particularly fast but adequately fuel-efficient.

Pros
Versatile, spacious interior
Seats four actual adults
Does well in safety tests
AWD at any trim level
Reasonable pricing

Cons
Generic styling
Acceleration lacking
Base LS model is truly plain

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Trax's mundane cabin and ho-hum performance place it solidly in the bottom half of our subcompact SUV rankings. Most of its competition is better in one or both of these areas.

Pros
Good maneuverability
Supportive seats

Cons
Weak engine
Low-rent interior
Limited small-item storage
