Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A refreshed version of Renault's popular Captur SUV is revealed at the Geneva motor sporting new features including an updated colour palette, LED lights and the option of a panoramic glass roof.The facelifted Captur will have 30 potential colour combinations, along with six different interior trims, giving it great potential for personalisation.
The new Captur has a more upmarket look and a stronger family resemblance to its larger Kadjar and Koleos SUV siblings thanks to a grid-like design featuring upper trim strips either side of the oversized Renault badge.

The French brand’s small SUV has been revamped with a range of changes inside and out, in a move that Renault will hope see the Captur remain on the shopping list for compact crossovers – locally, we’re talking: in Europe it was the biggest selling model in that segment last year, with a huge 215,670 sales.
The facelifted model comes almost four years after the Captur went on sale globally, and it brings updates to its styling such as new LED headlights on some models with C-shaped LED daytime running lights integrated into the lower bumper. The rear lights, too, are LED and have a similar design.
The grille has been redesigned to make it look more like the bigger Kadjar (not sold here), with a chrome strip highlight. There are skid plates on the front and rear bumpers, too. There are four new wheel options available – two 16-inch designs, and two 17-inch spinners. For those who like to let the light shine in, there’s a new optional fixed glass roof.

In essence, the Renault Captur is a Clio with a smattering of SUV traits and the style factor turned up. The result is a high-riding small hatchback that benefits from the added practicality of a sliding rear bench seat, plus supermini-like running costs and a variety of colourful interior and exterior themes that include a contrasting colour roof.
The Captur was one of the first small SUV rivals to Nissan’s groundbreaking Juke, and it remains one of the best offerings in the class.
Increasingly, buyers in this market also want to personalise their cars, and Renault offers a vast array of ways to customise your Captur, be it with different paint options or styling packs designed to make the Captur look like a rugged SUV.

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
