The Chevrolet Equinox was redesigned for 2010, and the second-generation model has been a resounding success. GM says that more than half of Equinox buyers have switched from non-GM brands, and that to keep up with demand, the company is retooling part of the plant to increase production capacity.
The 2012 Chevrolet Equinox comes with more standard equipment than the 2010, but it is otherwise identical. Some people believe the second year of production is the sweet spot because they’ve ironed out all the bugs but it’s still new.
The Equinox has pricing and features of a compact SUV, but it’s a little larger, and closer in size to a midsize SUV. And the Equinox comes with luxury and technology amenities not expected in its price class. In short, it’s a good value.
The current Equinox handles better than its predecessor, and ride quality is quite good. It is more carlike than the pre-2010 models, with less lean in turns. It’s not sporty, but it’s on par with its main competitors, including the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. We found that the Equinox absorbs even sharp bumps without disrupting passenger comfort with either the standard 17-inch or available 18-inch wheels.
Equinox LTZ add leather upholstery, a rear cargo cover, cargo net, roof rack cross bars, memory for the driver’s seat and mirrors, heated front seats, rear park assist, automatic headlights, power rear liftgate and chrome exterior trim.
