Driving Impression

Mechanically, at least, not much has changed since 2010. With either engine, the Equinox falls near the middle of its category in terms of power and dynamic functions.

Impressively advanced, including direct injection, the base engine provides respectable performance. A four-cylinder Equinox can reach 60 mph in around nine seconds, which is slow, roughly the same as the Honda CR-V. Passing demands some pre-planning. Engine clatter is rather prominent, but ride quality is good.

The V6 is the way to go for towing or confident performance, though it is substantially more thirsty. A V6 Equinox can haul up to 3,500 pounds. Not many V6 options remain in this segment, with competitors leaning toward turbo-four engines.

With either engine, transmission shifts can be rough. On hills, or in heavy traffic, the transmission might hesitate. Manual shifts are made using plus/minus toggle buttons on the gearshift knob.

Visibility remains a challenge, especially impaired by thick rear pillars.

Four-cylinder gas mileage is reasonably thrifty. With front-wheel drive, the base four-cylinder model is EPA-rated at 21/31 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops the four-cylinder EPA estimate to 20/28 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. In four-cylinder models, an Eco button can boost efficiency by reducing accessory power draw, optimizing shift points, and locking the transmission’s torque converter earlier.

Though it delivers towing power and is better able to pass on steep grades, the V6 is EPA-rated at only 17/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive sinks the estimate to 16/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

Mechanically, Chevrolet Equinox is practically a twin to the GMC Terrain. While GMC’s version is more aggressively styled, the Equinox doesn’t come across as anonymous, like some crossover models. Somewhat large for a compact crossover, and a bit chunky, the Equinox might also be perceived as a scaled-down version of the three-row Traverse.

Mild facelifting for 2016 gave the Equinox a more contemporary front end, with a sculpted lower fascia. With its dual-port grille, the Equinox more closely resembles other Chevrolet models. Upper trim levels get LED running lights.

Interior Overview

The Chevrolet Equinox compact crossover is a versatile cargo/people hauler for families that don’t need more than two rows of seats. The sliding second-row seat, which travels 8 inches forward/back, permits maximizing interior space to favor either back-seat passengers or cargo.

In every trim level, front passengers get the best seats, which are upright and supportive. The driver’s seat is especially appealing, in good position and carlike. Perforated leather upholstery in the Premier edition has an upscale look and feel.

Materials are good quality. The mild refresh for 2016 dealt with many cheaper-feeling materials.

In total, the cabin is surprisingly well-composed. An effective noise-cancellation system subdues sounds and light vibrations in four-cylinder models. Wind noise is nicely quelled, but the engine can be coarse while idling.

Stowage space is plentiful, for both smaller and bigger items. The deep center console can consume electronic devices and purses. Our only complaint is a cargo floor that should be a bit lower, but there’s a retractable cover and stretchable cargo net.

Summary

“”

The Chevrolet Equinox makes a fine family vehicle for vacations and road trips, as well as daily use. Considering its basic technology, this compact crossover provides good value, with an impressive option list for personal preferences. We recommend the four-cylinder engine for most buyers, but a light foot is needed to achieve the EPA’s fuel-economy estimates.
