Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Kia Sorento crossover finds a new look but the same mission: it’s the smaller hauler compared to the Telluride.

PROS
Better style
Available hybrid powertrains
Bigger interior
Telluride’s looks

CONS
What’s with the door tooth?
Is the second row more comfortable?
Not appreciably bigger

By:

The all-new Sorento is expected to make its debut at the Geneva auto show in March. Disguised and undisguised spy photos and several official images of the Kia have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the redesigned mid-size crossover. Its boxier proportions and bolder styling mark a stark departure from the curvier and softer appearance of the current Sorento. The Korean automaker has also said that the next-gen model will ride on an all-new platform that helps make it bigger inside and out. It will also feature a hybrid powertrain as well as an eventual plug-in variant.

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

By:

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.
