Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The XC40 Recharge is an all-new model for Volvo this year and represents the Swedish brand's first foray into all-electric propulsion—that's if you don't count its Polestar division's new Polestar 2 EV.

Pros
Attractive styling,
peppy acceleration,
thoughtfully designed cabin.

Cons
Key rivals offer more driving range,
hefty curb weight,
much pricier than the gasoline model.

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric has an appealing interior, a decent electric range, rapid performance and impressive safety credentials. It’s expensive next to many rivals, but the lower-spec models stack up fairly well next to similarly premium (if often larger and, in some cases, more fun) alternatives.

Pros
High-quality interior
Rapid performance
Decent range

Cons
Expensive next to many rivals
Fiddly infotainment menus
No traditional PCP finance

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.
