New Car Review: 2010 Chevy Equinox

By Martha Hindes2010-chevy-equinox

Equinox update balances ability, economy and style.

Call it elbow room with a view. Or maybe a traveling companion with taste. Either way, Chevy's redesigned Equinox for five is bound to make waves among the compact crossover crowd. A little bigger, a lot bolder than before, it has hiding places for goodies like laptops and is stingy only with fuel.

Weighing in at 22-32 MPG for the LTZ front drive version we drove, it was packed with safety and comfort gear, including handsome leather -- all in the $28K base price.Need to keep out rain while retrieving rear cargo? The lift gate adjusts to a lower or higher height. Shorter drivers don't need extra headroom; taller ones do. Visually, the new, 2010 Equinox pummels its predecessor, with cleaner, sportier lines anchored by dual exhausts. Inside, chrome trim highlights techy amenities, including premium Pioneer sound, USB, and Bluetooth connectivity. A sliding rear seat adds stretch room.

 

Road wise, the 2.4-liter performs admirably for a four banger. A split rear view mirror shows fore and aft during backups on non-navi models. Our verdict? We think overall quality seals the deal.
