Chevrolet Equinox Overview

The Equinox has easy cabin access and a huge rear seat. While the 3.6-liter V6 delivers decent performance, the dithering transmission makes it feel sluggish and fuel economy is just 18 mpg overall. The four-cylinder returned 21 mpg but has to work hard. Handling is sound, if unexceptional, and the ride is fairly compliant. Interior components look snazzy, but feel cheap. Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system is easy to use. High-trim LTZ models bring forward-collision and lane-departure warnings, but lack common features like a dual-zone climate system. A standard WiFi hotspot is new. Reliability has been above average, but the Equinox scores too low to be recommended.
