Which Equinox is the Best?

The base L and LS Equinox models have enticing prices, but we think buyers will be happier in an LT or a Premier -- or at the very least an LS with the Convenience Package ($685). The 1.5-liter turbo engine is adequate, but if you want notably more pizzazz, get the 2.0-liter engine exclusive to the LT or Premier and add AWD. Find a Chevrolet Equinox for sale

Is the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox a Safe Car?

In addition to mandated features such as airbags, a rearview camera and traction control systems, every Equinox includes active safety features such as forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and IntelliBeam automatic high beam headlights. Also standard: the Teen Driver Mode, which can set parameters on some vehicle functions, and the subscription-based OnStar telematics system, which comes with a 3-month trial. Optional safety features include a surround-view camera system and blind spot monitoring. If you want adaptive cruise control, you must buy the highest trim and then pay extra. On rivals such as the Honda CR-V, the Toyota RAV4 and the Subaru Forester, adaptive cruise control is standard on every model. In crash testing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox a 5-star overall rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this crossover SUV its highest rating of Good in every crash test and a Superior rating in the accident avoidance and mitigation test.

Competition

2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs the competition

2021 Honda CR-V -- The Honda CR-V is a benchmark in this segment. This Honda has more cargo room than the Equinox, a sterling record of reliability and resale value and a fantastic new hybrid model that earns up to 40 mpg. 2021 Toyota RAV4 -- The RAV4 is another leader in small SUVs. Toyota's small crossover also has more cargo space than the Equinox, and it has a broader model lineup that ranges from a plug-in hybrid to a TRD Off-Road version. 2021 Subaru Forester -- The Subaru Forester comes standard with AWD, impressive ground clearance and a standard suite of active safety features, and it has some of the highest resale values in the segment. 2021 Kia Sportage -- Although it doesn't have as much cargo room as some of its competitors, the Sportage earns a spot on this list because of its value pricing. Solid driving manners, tons of content and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty make this Kia appealing. Used Acura RDX -- A 2014-2018 Acura RDX comes with a powerful and efficient V6 engine. This luxury SUV also touts great reliability and resale value -- all at a cost that isn't much more than a new Equinox LT or Premier.
