The compact crossover market is crowded, and hugely competitive.
The standard-bearers for the class are still the Honda CR-V and the popular RAV4, both have been recently updated.
The Equinox slots between both in many categories, including fuel efficiency, but its smaller cargo area falls behind both.
Mazda's CX-5 is more driveable, but only features one engine choice for now.
Ford's Escape is sized similarly and has a fuel-efficient 1.5-liter turbo-4, but its interior lags behind the Chevy.
Subaru's Forester is another popular pick for buyers looking for all-wheel drive.
