Even though the subcompact NX is on the far side of the age curve, Lexus hasn't made any major changes to it for 2021. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is now standard, as are power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Inside, Lexus has tweaked the NX's steering wheel and tachometer designs. Opting for the upgraded Mark Levinson stereo system now includes a Mark Levinson-branded amplifier. And a new color joins the options sheet: Nori Green Pearl.

Pros
Chiseled styling,
proper SUV seating height,
spacious interior.

Cons
Fussy infotainment controller,
middle-of-the-pack acceleration,
starting to show its age.

The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Diesel engine is no longer available.Newly standard safety equipment.Slightly revised packages and options.

Pros
Turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is quite powerful
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Stable and precise handling

Cons
Smaller cargo area compared to most competitors

The base engine doesn't feel very lively

Driver-assistance features find their way to the standard features list on the 2020 Equinox: automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlamps—all previously optional—are now on all models. Further to that point, adaptive cruise control is now included in the optional Driver Confidence II package. Elsewhere in the lineup, a Midnight Edition package is new on LT models which blacks out just about everything that can be blacked out, including the Chevy bow-tie logos. The 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine is no longer available.

Pros
Spry driving demeanor, relatively efficient for an SUV, plenty of space for people and cargo.

Cons
Base engine lacks power, infotainment display is tilted too far back, high price among compact SUVs.
