The Chevrolet Equinox aims straight at the popular compact SUV segment, with its high-tech features, accomplished road manners and generous interior room. However, it doesn't quite deliver on its promise of good performance and fuel economy from its standard engine, and the interior is rather drab.

What Owners Say

"2.0L turbo is a great engine. It has a lot of power, better than the 6 cylinder in the 2017 Equinox. Handles very well."

"Excellent acceleration, very fast and responsive. Smooth handling!"

"Love all the feature, backup camera, blind spot warnings, ease of loading groceries into vehicle."

Thomas-Joyce J., MN (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"The new turbo engine in this car is amazing. It has excellent acceleration and handling. I read many reviews before purchasing and there were so many negatives. I have found it to be completely the opposite. I love driving it."

"The 1.5 liter turbo has excellent acceleration for a 4 cylinder coupled with what I consider to be great fuel economy."

"Would have liked to get bigger engine. Underpowered."

Peter Z., MI (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"I like the option for AWD or FWD. The last 3000 miles my MPG is 30. travel was mostly in FWD. that option also provides for less wear and tear on drive train/transmission components. If I am driving in heavy rain, I do put it in AWD to provide for better traction."

Anonymous, VT (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"Has very good power for such a small, fuel efficient engine. If I had to complain it will occasionally have a moments hesitation as to what gear to be in if throttle is applied while slowing almost to a stop but it is not a big deal. Just noticable"

"It takes corners nicely. It has good "get up and go"!"

Mark N., MI (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"The 2 liter turbo engine is powerful and responsive. The 9 speed transmission is so smooth shifts are all but undetectable. The downside is that 93 octane fuel is recommended, but not actually required if you are willing to settle for degraded performance and lower mileage."

Charles S., KY (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"We are very pleased with the performance of this vehicle, it is hard to believe that it has a small 4 cyl engine - when you need to scoot out into traffic from a ramp you never question whether you will make it or not. Handling is predictable and solid, in spite of being in a high seating position."

Jonathan D., NY (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"The new Equinox is our first choice to drive. Its ride is almost as good as our Impala. The power of the 2.0 turbo and the excellent handling make it feel more like a sporty car than a utility vehicle!"

"Acceleration is brisk and gas mileage is excellent. The Hanook tires on the car are horrible. They slip and slide on the slightest bit of rain or snow. It is better with AWD engages but still slips and is unnerving. They scream "we tried to save a dollar or two" but it failed for me the consumer."

Kevin W., MI (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"The turbo gives plenty of zip, quick response."

Ann G., FL (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"Competent handling with good steering feel. There is a VERY disconcerting “dead spot‿ in acceleration from a stop if you hit the pedal hard. The turbo lag and a much too soon shift from first to second gear make the Equinox feel as though it’s stalled for a second or two."

William G., PA (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

Arnold B., CT (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"Vehicle handles, rides, and has plenty of power. Great SUV."

J M., MN (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"Plenty of acceleration with the 4 cylinder turbo. With all the sensors around the car we feel safe knowing the proximity of other vehicles around us."

Max H., IA (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"We got the 1.5L turbo engine for the slightly better mileage and low initial cost. We test drove both the 1.5 and 2.0 turbo. The deference in acceleration was not enough to go with the 2.0. Our experience driving the 1.5 bears that out. It gets good highway mileage (30-35) and has p plenty of power for passing. Good mileage around town. My wife is the primary driver and loves the look and style."

"It handles very well on the road and has plenty of power for the size of the motor."

Richard L., CA (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"My 2018 is the first car where I can say am happy with the amount of power it has and the fuel economy it makes. I carry lots of bulky video gear and people. I also ski in the winter. It has fantastic snow traction. I have had many cars in my life, many of which terrified me driving in the winter. The Equinox stays on xxxxxxx michigan roads and I never felt like I was loosing control of the car. At first the auto stop/start system was annoying mostly because I was not used to it and did not understand how it functioned. Now I rarely notice it. if there was something to complain about, I would may say the brakes are very responsive. I come from older cars that do not have such responsive brakes... Again maybe more from what I used to then a fault of the car."

Stephan M., MI (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

Deb H., OH (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"Very good torque and acceleration."

Anonymous, WA (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"Have the 2.0 T engine that is very responsive with seamless shifts from the 9 speed transmission. The downside is the Auto Stop system that can't be deactivated. IE: When parking even for @ 1-2 seconds id Drive as you realign the wheels it stops. Same as if a Stop sign for over 1 second. The re starts are seamless but the short time to shut down is very annoying. Would prevent me buying or leasing another."

Anonymous, MI (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"The drive is stable, handles well on back winding roads and great on the highway. Very stable at high speeds. Lane assist can get annoying but you can turn it off. The auto dimming and Intellibeam feature is great on highways. The rear park assist and 360 camera are great. The Bose 7 speaker give great sound.

"Very torquey and extremely smooth shifting."

Gene D., TX (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"We're one of the rare diesel owners and we were impressed coming from a Jetta Sportwagen that it feels similar despite being taller and 800 pounds heavier. We get the same economy on the highway (42 MPG) and the same diesel punch at a stoplight. The biggest surprise is that it corners well, we recently had to swerve hard to avoid hitting a car in our lane on the highway and it stayed composed into the speed strip and into the grass without overcorrection. I highly recommend the 19" sport tires though (over the stock 18"), I think this helped. Brakes are a low point, they take a lot more force than a German car."

"We purchased the 4 cylinder Turbo. While it does the job, I would prefer a little more punch with the V6. The 4 cylinder really has to work on acceleration on the highway with a full load of people. (4) There is nothing wrong with the 4 cylinder. It gets good mileage."

"Extremely comfortable seating, I love the large screen on the dash, with all the sensors and cameras, we feel the safest backing and driving that we ever have in the past."

Max H., IA (2018 Chevrolet Equinox)

"I feel I received reasonable value for the price paid. The vehicle gets very good gas mileage and still has good power for such a small engine. It has enough room to carry bulky items. I miss the fold up grocery organizer that our Saturn Vue had to keep smaller items from rolling around. The price point of the vehicle was similar to competitors"

"Top quality vehicle. I get great fuel mileage with this diesel engine. It is very quiet and comfortable"

"I do not drive the Equinox but my husband does. He loves the front collision warning,lane wandering warning, etc. He is completely satisfied with the performance and handling. It has all of the bells and whistles of the Cadillac, but for much less total money."

"I needed a compact SUV that I could flat tow behind an RV. The only choices were this Equinox and a Jeep Cherokee. This one was a much better value in that it cost $10,000 less and has every feature except the 4 wheel drive and several Jeep does not offer. Much better value"

"For the cost of the vehicle, nice size, good fuel mileage, low insurance costs, seems to be well made. however, when you close the doors, the door panels look and sound like they seem to flex alot and they look like they are going to fall off."

"I had a 2015 Ford Fushion, with basically the same frills. This new Equinox I got cheaper and all aspects of it are better except the sound quality of the music system. Not horrible in the Equinox, just not as good."
