The Chevy Equinox is a worthy choice for a small crossover SUV, particularly if you're interested in one with a nice highway ride. A quiet cabin, lots of leg room, decent cargo space and good fuel economy will keep comfortable on long family road trips and efficient running around town. The inside of the Equinox is generally stylish and well laid out and seating comfort and legroom are good all around, and the sliding and reclining second-row seats allow you to expand the amount of legroom in the rear. The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox also got a welcome rejuvenation with revised front-end styling with projector-beam headlights, LED daytime running lights (LT and LTZ) and an updated rear fascia with new taillights. Upgraded cloth upholstery and a 7-inch touchscreen with a rearview camera are now standard on the base L and LS trims, while the dashboard gets a new storage shelf and updated control graphics.
The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact crossover SUV that's offered in four trim levels: L, LS, LT and LTZ.
Standard equipment on the entry-level L includes 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, air-conditioning, premium cloth upholstery, a partial power driver seat with power height and lumbar adjustments, a 60/40-split second-row seat that slides and reclines, cruise control, a trip computer and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. In terms of onboard technology, the Equinox L comes standard with Bluetooth phone (but not audio) connectivity, OnStar communications (with an in-car 4G WiFi hotspot), a 7-inch touchscreen interface, a rearview camera and a six-speaker sound system with an auxiliary audio input jack and a USB port.
The Equinox LS is very similar but has a few extra features, most notably satellite radio, a compass and an available towing package that's also optional on LT and LTZ.
The LT adds different 17-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors, rear privacy glass, roof rack side rails and an upgraded audio system that includes Chevy's MyLink interface, Bluetooth audio connectivity, voice controls and smartphone integration for Internet radio apps (Pandora and Stitcher).
The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission and is available with front- or all-wheel drive. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder puts out 182 hp and 172 pound-feet of torque. The EPA projects 26 mpg combined (22 city/32 highway) with front-wheel drive and 23 mpg combined (20/29) with all-wheel drive.
Standard safety features on the 2016 Chevy Equinox include antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags. Also standard are a rearview camera and GM's OnStar emergency communications system, which includes automatic crash notification, an emergency assistance button, remote door unlock and stolen vehicle assistance. In government crash tests, the Equinox received an overall score of four stars out of a possible five, with four stars for frontal crash protection and five stars for side protection. In testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Equinox earned the highest possible rating of "Good" in the small-overlap frontal-offset, moderate-overlap frontal offset, side impact and roof strength tests. Its head and seat restraint design was also rated "Good" for whiplash protection in rear impacts.
