Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Suzuki Ignis bears a familiar name but, if you think this new model shares the boring Euro-box design of the old cars, think again.

Pros
Striking looks
Decent passenger space
Hybrid version for the environmentally conscious

Cons
Limited engine choice
Some rivals ride better
Infotainment system isn’t class-leading

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Pros
Funky and chunky styling
Colourful personalisation options
Peppy little engine

Cons
No active safety systems available
Not really an SUV
Ride can be a little crashy

By: 
drive.com.au

Pros
Looks superb,
doesn’t use much fuel,
low prices,
chirpy character.

Cons
The ride’s pretty unsophisticated… and that’s about it

The new Equinox is based on an all-new architecture that weighs about 400 pounds less than its predecessor. Chevrolet credits the weight saving to high-strength steel and other grams-add-up type measures, but the reality is that there's quite a bit less Equinox this time around. The 2018 Equinox shrinks, losing its "tweener" status, and is now much closer to the Honda CR-V in all four main dimensions. To Chevy's credit the interior dimensions are pretty much the same, with the small hit in cargo space mitigated by the large hidden storage area under the cargo floor.
The pricing disparity against its competition is a shame, because the Equinox is a compelling compact crossover SUV in virtually every other way. It looks great inside and out, offers good high-tech features, drives exceptionally well, will offer a diesel engine, and the promise of a high-horsepower version sounds fun. We just wish Chevy would take the cue from its competitors and broaden the availability of its advanced safety tech and add in active cruise as well.

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a needed step forward for the brand and a solid compact crossover.

Pros
Solid base engine
Denim-like fabric is surprisingly comfortable
Lighter, brighter, and smarter
A fuel-efficient turbodiesel coming

Cons
Still hard plastics abound
Not as fuel-efficient as some
Safety features reserved for top trims
Smaller rear cargo area

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is fully redesigned for 2018. It's slightly smaller overall compared to its predecessor, but the reduced weight combined with more efficient engines pay off at the pump.

Pros
Three engines to choose from, including a fuel-efficient diesel
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Expansive list of optional safety features
MyLink user interface is intuitive and easy to use

Cons
Smaller cargo area compared to most of its competitors
Base L trim is special order only
The 1.5-liter engine and its slow-shifting transmission don't feel very lively
