TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a needed step forward for the brand and a solid compact crossover. The 2018 GMC Terrain tucks into a jazzy new body, and boasts a great new turbo-4 drivetrain, but needs to spread its safety message farther, and wider. As long as cargo space isn’t your main reason for buying a compact crossover, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is an excellent, fun-to-drive choice.
