Chevrolet Equinox Overview

The Equinox is roomy and accommodating, with easy access and a huge rear seat. Its 3.6-liter V6 delivers decent performance but a dithering transmission makes it feel sluggish and fuel economy averaged only 18 mpg. The base 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 materials feel cheap. Chevy'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. Reliability has been average but the Equinox scores too low to be recommended.
