What’s new

  • New Infotainment 3 touchscreen interface
  • Newly available adaptive cruise
  • New Lights and Brights package for LT models
  • Part of the third Equinox generation introduced for 2018

Pros

  • Three engines to choose from, including a fuel-efficient diesel
  • Smooth ride over most road surfaces
  • Excellent handling characteristics

Cons

  • Smaller cargo area compared to most of its competitors
  • Wallet-friendly base L trim is special order only
  • The base gasoline and diesel engines don't feel very lively
  • Interior materials quality is disappointing considering the price


Which Equinox does Edmunds recommend?

Considering the L is special order only, and the LS doesn't add much for a substantial price bump, we think it's worth skipping straight to the LT model. Its list of added features isn't extensive, but you do get upgraded headlights for better nighttime visibility, along with satellite radio and tinted glass. The LT also opens the doors to several worthy option packages. The Confidence and Convenience package stands out, with additional luxury features and blind-spot monitoring.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

7.4 / 10

Fortune doesn't necessarily favor the bold in the compact crossover segment — the Honda CR-V, the Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV4 are perennial best-sellers thanks in part to their all-around competencies and history of reliability. Still, automakers strive to make their small SUVs distinct. The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox stands out by bringing high-end luxury features and a couple of distinctive engines to this typically price-conscious class.

Redesigned just last year, the Equinox is one of the newer entries in this segment. As such, all the latest safety features are available, from a surround-view parking camera to forward collision warning system that can identify pedestrians. Unlike some competitors, most of these features can only be ordered on the top trim level, but at least you can get them. Also available are a panoramic sunroof, a surround-view parking camera and ventilated front seats — rare options in this class.

We also like that the Equinox offers two alternative powertrains if you aren't satisfied with the base turbocharged 1.5-liter engine. At one end of the spectrum is a fuel-efficient diesel that achieves 32 mpg in combined driving (the standard engine earns 28 mpg); at the other, a turbocharged 2.0-liter with an additional 80 horsepower. Be careful, however: Once you start checking the options boxes, the Equinox can be substantially more expensive than rival crossovers. An engine stop-start system that cannot be disabled and disappointing materials quality also might give prospective buyers pause.

2019 Chevrolet Equinox configurations

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is a five-passenger compact crossover that costs a bit more than most rivals. It's sold in four trims: L, LS, LT and Premier. The base L model seems like a great deal until you realize that it's a custom-order model and you'll have to wait for it to be built. You'll find the LS at practically any dealer, but it's more expensive and doesn't add much. Best to skip straight to the LT, which is just a bit more expensive and includes more features and access to additional options. If you want the LT and its two packages, the leather-trimmed Premier includes it all.

Three engines are offered on the Equinox. The standard engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder (170 horsepower, 203 pound-feet of torque) matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine (252 hp, 260 lb-ft) is optional and comes standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Also optional is a fuel-efficient 1.6-liter diesel (137 hp, 240 lb-ft) mated to a six-speed automatic. Both of these engines can be ordered on LT and Premier trim levels.

The front-drive-only base L is well-equipped, and it comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, a fuel-saving engine stop-start system, a rearview camera, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, a driver information display, height-adjustable front seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Chevrolet's Teen Driver watchdog modes, Bluetooth, OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hotspot, a 7-inch touchscreen and a six-speaker audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two USB ports up front, and two charge-only USB ports in the rear.

It's a built-to-order trim, however, so you're most likely going to see the next-level LS on dealer lots. It's pricier and doesn't add much besides rear floor mats, a spare tire and a tire jack. It does open the door to an expanded range of exterior colors and availability of all-wheel drive, however, so it's worth considering if you want the least expensive AWD model. The new LS Convenience package adds a power driver's seat and rear privacy glass.

Stepping up to the LT adds xenon headlights, an upgraded information display, auxiliary rear-seat release levers, satellite radio, and the contents of the LS Convenience package. Select either of the optional engines and you'll also add a sunroof and roof rails, while the 2.0-liter motor exclusively adds 18-inch wheels.

The LT offers three notable feature packages. The Lights and Brights package pads on 19-inch wheels, chrome exterior trim, and LED headlights and taillights. The Infotainment package adds a 120-volt household-style power outlet, an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation and two USB ports in the armrest bin. The related Sun and Navigation package includes the contents of the Infotainment package plus a sunroof.

For increased safety, get the Confidence and Convenience package, which includes rear parking sensors, a power liftgate (except on the diesel), remote engine start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring.

Finally, the range-topping Premier includes the above packages (minus the navigation system and panoramic sunroof) along with 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, foglights, auto-dimming mirrors, roof rails, a hands-free liftgate, chrome exterior trim, ambient interior lighting, driver-seat memory settings, perforated leather upholstery and wireless device charging. Nineteen-inch wheels are added with the selection of the 2.0-liter engine.

Even the top-trim Premier leaves some goodies on the table. The feature-heavy Confidence and Convenience II package adds automatic high-beam control, a 360-degree parking camera system, a heated steering wheel, a power passenger seat, ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist, a meter that measures the distance (in time) between you and the car in front, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking. The Sun, Sound and Navigation package builds on top of this package with 19-inch wheels, the panoramic sunroof, navigation, and a seven-speaker Bose audio system with HD radio.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Chevrolet Equinox Premier (turbo 2.0-liter inline-4 | 9-speed automatic | FWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2018, the current Equinox has received some revisions, including a revised infotainment system for 2019. Our findings remain applicable to this year's Equinox, however.

Driving

8.0
The upgrade from the base 1.5-liter engine to the 2.0-liter is well-justified with the amount of power and efficiency it delivers. On top of that, the Equinox has impressive handling on a twisty road. The only downside is the big turning radius that affects U-turns and parking.

Acceleration

9.0
This engine is one of the best in the class. Acceleration is smooth and very manageable in everyday driving, but the front-wheel-drive model can generate torque steer when you floor it. Ours needed only 6.4 seconds to reach 60 mph, quicker than rivals. The diesel took a more leisurely 9.8 seconds.

Braking

8.0
The brakes feel nice and dependable. The pedal effort is appropriate for this kind of vehicle, and response is neither grabby nor lazy. It just feels right. Our Equinox executed a panic stop from 60 mph in 115 feet, a solid result in the compact SUV class.

Steering

8.0
Steering effort is what we expect from a small crossover, with low effort at parking speeds and more weighting at highway speeds. The vehicle tracks straight on most surfaces, and ample on-center feel makes for a relaxing drive. But we noticed some squirm on roads with longitudinal rain grooves.

Handling

9.0
The Equinox is surprisingly capable and balanced on a challenging twisty road. The handling limits are surprisingly high and approachable in these conditions, and it's just about as fun to drive as the class-leading Mazda CX-5.

Drivability

6.0
We're deducting points for an unusually large turning circle. Multipoint turns are a common occurrence with this car on streets where rivals can make a simple U-turn. We noticed this characteristic when nosing into crowded parking lots, too.

Comfort

7.0
Aside from the poorly placed air vents on the dash and the rather stifling leather upholstery, the Equinox gets high marks for comfort. Driving for many hours on end will not cause any undue fatigue. All things considered, it's comparable to other SUVs in the class.

Seat comfort

7.0
The front seats are well-shaped for long hours on the road, though the lumbar adjustment seemed a bit too low, pushing on the top of the hips. The cushioning is adequate, but the perforated leather didn't breathe well without the ventilation activated. The rear seats offer good thigh support.

Ride comfort

8.0
The majority of ruts and bumps are well-absorbed by the compliant suspension. The car feels remarkably solid on the road without any harshness. This is especially impressive when you consider how well the Equinox handles.

Noise & vibration

7.0
Road and wind noise is noticeable but not at all intrusive. On paper, it's as comparably quiet as the Honda CR-V, but in practice it sounds marginally louder. The diesel engine emits a lot of chatter that reminds us of old-school diesels.

Climate control

6.0
The vertical vents flanking the touchscreen do a poor job of distributing air. The only part of the driver they're able to cool are your knuckles. The ventilated seats are very effective at reducing the stifling nature of the leather upholstery.

Interior

7.0
The Equinox interior is attractive and mostly well-configured. But we would prefer the steering wheel to telescope further and wish the panoramic sunroof wasn't as intrusive for rear passengers.

Ease of use

7.0
The touchscreen is awkwardly angled away, making it prone to catching glare and obscuring the display. Otherwise, the layout of the controls is logical, and operating the many systems is intuitive.

Getting in/getting out

7.0
The step-in height is low enough for smaller passengers to get in with minimal effort, and the doors are small enough to open wide in tight parking spaces. But the bottom edge of the doors are low and prone to scraping on high curbs.

Driving position

6.0
There's a good range of seat adjustment, but the steering wheel doesn't telescope far enough for average-size adult drivers, forcing them to sit closer and more upright than many will prefer.

Roominess

6.0
There's a wealth of room up front, but rear headroom is limited by the panoramic sunroof. Thankfully, you can get the Equinox's best features without opting for the sunroof.

Visibility

7.0
The front roof pillar is a bit thicker than you'll find in rivals, somewhat obstructing the view through left turns. Visibility out the sides and back is typical for other compact SUVs, with some reliance on the rearview camera needed in tight spots.

Quality

5.0
The interior materials quality is disappointing for the class and even more so when you consider how expensive the Equinox is. Hard plastics are one thing, but the textures are mismatched and there's a definite downmarket look and feel.

Utility

7.5
While the Equinox doesn't have an abundance of cargo space compared to rivals, it should handle the bulk of everyday hauling. Some thoughtful features help compensate for the lack of on-paper capacity.

Small-item storage

7.5
There are plenty of bins, pockets and trays to hold your personal effects. The trays for cellphones are particularly helpful with rubberized coverings to keep objects in place.

Cargo space

7.0
In terms of cargo capacity, the Equinox is slightly below average, but we think there's plenty of space. Still, it's well below the Honda CR-V's class-leading capacity. The self-folding rear seats and underfloor storage are praiseworthy additions.

Child safety seat accommodation

8.0
The LATCH anchors are easy to find and hook up to, and there's plenty of space for forward-facing seats. Rear-facing seats fit well if the passenger seated ahead doesn't slide the seat into the last third of seat travel.

Technology

8.0
Chevrolet gets high marks for tech, curing many of the ills that plagued past models. It has plenty of features that are standard throughout the lineup, and the inclusion of six USB ports ensures all devices will be charged.

Audio & navigation

8.0
The infotainment system's sharp graphics make it easy to read at a glance. The optional Bose premium audio is surprisingly powerful with excellent clarity.

Smartphone integration

8.5
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard equipment. The Apple CarPlay system had no glitches to speak of and is more intuitive than the MyLink system. It's a good substitute for the optional navigation system that forces you to add the panoramic sunroof. Also, there are six USB ports.

Driver aids

8.0
The forward collision warning system is well-tuned to avoid false alarms and is also adjustable for sensitivity. The lane keeping assist, however, doesn't activate until you're well over the line. We're fans of the safety alert seat, which is more effective than beeps and flashes.

Voice control

8.0
The MyLink and Apple CarPlay voice controls are equally good at accurately deciphering commands. The Apple CarPlay gets a slight edge for the ability to use more natural speech, but it is reliant on an internet connection.

Sexy SUV
Justine,07/31/2018
This is one of the best riding SUV in its category... I test drove Every model car in this class from all SUV manufacturers.. The price and the comfort did not add up.. I went to buy a Toyato SUV but the space and the comfort wasn't the same. I have always purchased new Toyatos vehicles.. My company car was an Experdition by Ford, I liked that SUV but it was too big just for me to purchase from my company.. I really like my Equinox and it only cost me $37.00 to fill up compared to $110.00...

Chevrolet Equinox vs. the competition

2018 GMC Terrain

2018 GMC Terrain

Chevrolet Equinox vs. GMC Terrain

The Equinox and GMC Terrain are mechanically related, sharing a common platform and the same engine lineup. There aren't many differences aside from styling and pricing — the Chevy is a little less expensive when you compare trims. Additionally, the Terrain's luxe Denali trim features a cabin with materials that look and feel nicer than the one in its Equinox counterpart.

Compare Chevrolet Equinox & GMC Terrain features

Chevrolet Equinox vs. Ford Escape

Ford has done an admirable job updating the Escape since this model's debut in 2013, but the newer Equinox has it beat in most respects. The Escape costs less than its crosstown rival, but the Equinox's interior is more current and fields fewer hard plastics. The Equinox's gasoline engines are also more efficient even if you don't opt for the fuel-sipping diesel engine.

Compare Chevrolet Equinox & Ford Escape features

Chevrolet Equinox vs. Honda CR-V

Like the Equinox, Honda's CR-V was also recently redesigned and is an evolutionary improvement over its predecessor. Most CR-V models are powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that is peppier and a bit more fuel-efficient than the Equinox's base engine. The CR-V also has a larger cargo area, a more upscale interior and more standard safety features. But you can't get a more powerful engine as you can in the Equinox.

More about the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox

It's no surprise that the compact crossover market is the biggest segment in the U.S. thanks to vehicles such as the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox. As with most Chevrolets, the Equinox is sold in several different trim levels with many option packages. All these available configurations give you a great chance at finding the perfect model at your local Chevy dealer.

Chevrolet offers the 2019 Equinox in four trim levels: L, LS, LT and Premier. The base L is very well-equipped relative to its low price, with standard features including automatic headlights, a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a 7-inch touchscreen, and smartphone compatibility via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, this value-rich base trim will be nearly impossible to find on dealer lots because it's available by special order only. Dealers will more likely have plenty of LS models, however, which is nearly $2,000 more but adds rear floor mats and a spare tire (instead of a tire inflator kit), along with an expanded exterior color palette and available all-wheel drive.

The LT is a modestly priced upgrade that adds xenon headlights, a power driver's seat and satellite radio. It also opens the door to additional features with three available packages: Infotainment, Lights and Brights, and Confidence and Convenience. The Premier model gets a big price bump since it comes standard with all three of the previously mentioned packages. It also includes LED headlights, a hands-free liftgate and leather upholstery. If the Premier doesn't already have everything you want, it can be bolstered with the Confidence and Convenience II package and the Sun, Sound and Navigation package.

Even with the base turbocharged 1.5-liter engine, the Equinox is often pricier than its competitors. It's considerably more expensive when equipped with either the more powerful 2.0-liter gasoline engine or the fuel-sipping 1.6-liter diesel. Both alternatives are worth considering since the 1.5-liter and its slow-shifting six-speed automatic feel lethargic, especially in hilly areas.

Despite its sluggish base engine, the Equinox is certainly worth a look if you're in the market for a well-rounded compact SUV. There's plenty of cargo space, the central touchscreen interface is intuitive and easy to use, and its spacious cabin allows for 6-foot-plus passengers to sit in the back with room to spare. If features are important to you, the Equinox offers some that are difficult to find in this segment, including ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof and a 360-degree parking camera. If you have a compact crossover set squarely in your sights, use Edmunds' peerless shopping tools to build and find the perfect 2019 Chevrolet Equinox for you and your family.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
