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.

Pros
Punchy engine,
4WD grip,
smooth DSG gearbox

Cons
Is a fast crossover,
scratchy interior plastics,
droney noise

The Volkswagen T-Roc R blends the decent practicality of the regular T-Roc with bombastic performance and stunning agility. It’s a lot more fun than similarly priced rivals, so one of the best sports SUVs on sale.

Pros
Thrilling handling
Strong and flexible engine
Well equipped

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior
Some road noise
Not the roomiest

If you like the Golf R and don’t mind SUVs, you’ll probably like the Volkswagen T-Roc R too.

Pros
Very similar in most ways to the Golf R

Cons
No end in sight to the SUV craze
