Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Chevy Equinox draws closer to the Blazer in looks and mission.

Pros
Better front end
More sculpted rear end
Standard active safety features
New RS trim

Cons
Interior hasn’t changed much
No advanced driver assistance
No hybrid powertrain yet
Relatively pricey

A refreshed front end highlights the changes to the 2021 Equinox. The makeover brings more distinctive headlights, a new grille design, and updated front and rear bumpers. Chevy also adds an RS model, which includes sporty styling cues such as dark 19-inch wheels and blacked-out exterior trim. Its interior boasts a unique shift knob, red stitching, and black upholstery. The top-tier Premier also has spiffier cabin details, such as French stitching and gloss-black trim on the console.

Pros
Tons of passenger space,
agile on-road behavior,
generous infotainment features.

Cons
Weak four-cylinder engine,
pricier than most rivals,
largest wheel size reduces ride quality.

The 2021 Kia Sorento crossover SUV strikes out in a new styling direction, and brings hybrid and plug-in models along for the adventure.

PROS
More expressive
Available hybrid powertrains
Bigger interior
More square inches of touchscreen

CONS
What’s with the door tooth?
Third-row seat’s very, very small
More noise
More hard plastic in the cabin

The Sorento is all new for 2021, with a starting price that's $2450 higher than last year. Its boxier proportions and bolder styling mark a stark departure from the curvier and softer appearance of the outgoing Sorento. In addition to riding on an all-new platform that's bigger inside and out, the new Sorento adds a hybrid powertrain as well as an eventual plug-in variant.We like the EX trim level. It's pricier than the bottom two models, but it comes standard with the more powerful 281-hp turbo-four. It also has nicer amenities than the S trim below it that include leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, remote start, and snazzier styling such as 18-inch wheels and black exterior accents.
