Compact SUVs hit all the right notes with consumers seeking everyday convenience and easy maneuverability — the Chevrolet Equinox is a key player in this class. Like other compact crossovers, the Chevy Equinox can accommodate a family of four and a week's worth of road-trip luggage while offering desirable infotainment and safety technologies. The standard engine aims to deliver both reasonable fuel economy and sufficient acceleration, but a more powerful engine is available. Optional all-wheel drive gives Equinox owners extra wintertime traction. Many other compact SUVs offer these attributes as well, so your decision might hinge on details related to styling, comfort, technology, or a preference toward a traditional U.S. company.
