Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value

There’s a lot to like about the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox, even if the best configuration requires a careful hand on the order sheet.

Pros
Wide range of engine, trim choices
Comfortable interior
Good ride and handling
Gas engines provide solid performance

Cons
Diesel misses the mark
Advanced safety gear costs extra—too much extra
Some awkward design angles
9-speed automatic can feel confused
Deceptive base trim level

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox ranked #10 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Equinox has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Above-average fuel economy
Supportive, roomy seats
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Unimpressive cabin build quality
Below-average cargo capacity
Limited maneuverability in cramped spaces

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox stands out by bringing high-end luxury features and a couple of distinctive engines to this typically price-conscious class.

Pros
Three engines to choose from, including a fuel-efficient diesel
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Excellent handling characteristics

Cons
Interior materials quality is disappointing considering the price
The base gasoline and diesel engines don't feel very lively
Wallet-friendly base L trim is special order only
Smaller cargo area compared to most of its competitors
