Chevrolet Equinox 2018

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Features Rundown

The compact crossover market is hotter than ever, so it's the perfect time to debut the fully redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. This smaller, lighter Equinox puts a premium on fuel efficiency, safety and connectivity. Too bad it carries a premium price tag to match. In this video, we highlight the key features that matter most. From mpg, interior space and technology to design and comfort - these pros and cons will help steer you toward a perfect car.

I'm Edmund's editor Bryn MacKinnon, and here's a features rundown of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. For 2018, the Chevy Equinox gets a full redesign. It's smaller and lighter than before, which, combined with more efficient engines, gives it better fuel economy. A new diesel option will also be available. We're partial to the 2.0 liter turbo engine option for its quick acceleration and sharp response. By comparison, the base 1.5 liter seems to struggle. We were pleasantly surprised how well the Equinox handles. Its very capable, even fun on a winding road, and the ride quality doesn't suffer as a result. The Equinox sticker price is higher than similarly equipped SUV's in the class. But common incentives and deals can get the cost more competitive. We caution buyers to keep an eye on options as they can be expensive. We think there's plenty of cargo space for most owners, but it's important to note that it's smaller than the competition. A hands free power liftgate and remote levers that fold the rear seats flat are nice convenience features, though. The rear seats offer good support for adults, but the optional panoramic sunroof does cut into headroom back there. The interior design is pleasant and many features are easy to use. The vertical vents in the center of the dash are attractive but don't distribute the air very well. With a strong infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a standard Wi-Fi hotspot, and six available US ports, the Equinox gets high marks for technology. Front seats are comfortable, and ventilated seats are available. In general, we like the interior, but there are some hard plastic materials that seem out of place. Chevy Equinox's top competitors include Honda CRV, Mazda CX 5, and Toyota RAV4. Bottom line, the Equinox is not the most exciting compact crossover to drive, but it is one of the best all rounders in the class. If you can look past its small cargo area, you'll be rewarded with a comfortable ride, roomy cabin, and one of the best touchscreen systems in the business.
