I traded my Impala for the Equinox because we were going on a road trip and wanted more room. The Equinox has that. We traveled from Texas to Califoria and back without a hitch. Gas mileage is good. Lots of leg room. I like the sporty look of the Equinox even though it is not the sport model. The position of the windo controls took a little getting used to. All in all I would recommend this vehicle.
Leg room, radio controls on the steering wheel, message center
I am not crazy about the console in the middle with the one cup holder. When you put down the arm rest you cannot access anything in the console
