The 2023 Chevrolet Equinox faces stiff competition, most notably from the hot-selling Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.

Each offers a little more polish and far better fuel economy (in their hybrid forms) than the Chevy, albeit sometimes with higher pricing.

The Subaru Forester ticks a lot of boxes when it comes to safety and space, while the Nissan Rogue serves up spicy styling and decent power.

Finally, the Mazda CX-5 may not be the most refined choice in the segment, but it’s the most fun—and in signature trim it’s the fanciest.
