The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a needed step forward for the brand and a solid compact crossover. The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport still does what good crossover SUVs do best: it delivers flexible space, decent performance, and great value.
