2020 Chevrolet Equinox vs. Its Competition

2020 Chevrolet Equinox
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The GMC Terrain is the Equinox’s sibling, all things considered, and offers much of the same experience in a slightly classier package.

Ford’s new Escape is more softly rounded, rides better, and now comes with a plug-in hybrid edition.

The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 are perennial sales leaders in this segment for a reason, offering great standard features, safety, and value.

Our pick of the lot is the Subaru Forester however, which comes with standard all-wheel drive, active safety tech, and a fun XT model.
