Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Jeep Renegade is the smallest Jeep you can buy, appealing both to commuters and off-roaders, but its design can outshine its performance.
The 2017 Jeep Renegade, the smallest crossover you can buy from Fiat Chrysler's fabled off-road brand, continues for its third model year with only minor changes. It's the smallest Jeep sold since the Willys Jeep launched as a post-war civilian vehicle, but it's a modern utility vehicle with features GIs never dreamed of. Trim levels for the little Renegade run from Sport through Latitude and Limited, and include the tougher off-road Trailhawk version as well.

Pros
Genuine Jeep
Mostly quiet
Off-road ability if needed
Neat design touches
Clever removable roof

Cons
Styling borders on cute
Cramped rear seat
Fuel economy so-so

The 2017 Jeep Renegade ranks 3 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Jeep Renegade ranks high on our list of subcompact SUVs for its balanced on- and off-road performance – which is an exceedingly rare combination in any SUV, much less the subcompact SUV class – and its quality interior.

Pros
Incredible off-road abilities
Upscale cabin
Lithe yet comfortable handling

Cons
Very few standard features
Poor fuel economy compared to rivals

The Jeep Renegade certainly isn't the first carlike Jeep, but it's the first one to prove that Jeep styling and playfulness can translate successfully to a subcompact crossover. It's rewarding to drive yet still practical.
The 2017 Jeep Renegade essentially carries over from the previous year. Xenon headlights (delayed availability), automatic high beams, and keyless ignition and entry are new features this year.

Pros
Lots of character with a classic Jeep look
Agile handling when going around turns
Plenty of easy-to-use technology features
Best-in-class off-road capability with Trailhawk model

Cons
Middling fuel economy
Confused and clunky nine-speed automatic transmission
Tight rear seat legroom for adults
Limited cargo capacity compared to rivals
Boxy shape makes for lots of wind noise on the highway.

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
