The Equinox has a roomy rear seat rivalling that of some large sedans and SUVs. But overall, it doesn't compare well with competing models. We found interior quality subpar and seating very uncomfortable. Further, rear seats that don't fold flat and obtrusive wheelwells limit the usefulness of the cargo area. The ride is unsettled, handling is clumsy and steering is vague. The coarse-sounding engine gets only 17 mpg, which is typical of larger SUVs.
