2014 Chevrolet Equinox: An Oxymoron of a Larger Compact-Crossover SUV

2014 Chevy Equinox

As the largest in the Compact- Crossover Class, the Chevrolet Equinox actually has some experts stymied as to what to do with the vehicle. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) saw fit to put it in the mid-sized SUV class and award it with a Top Safety Pick Plus Award for that class. The Equinox however, is a bit small for the mid-sized SUV class and instead belongs in a category with the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and Toyota RAV4.

Giving up some cargo space in favor of passenger comfort the Equinox when powered by the V6 engine is able to tow up to 3,500 pounds, enough to make this a great choice to bring along the weekend toys or head to the hardware store and buy what is needed for a small project in the yard. Offering a fairly standard ride with decent road control and adequate steering the overall feel of the ride in this SUV is pretty much what is expected. The one place the ride is better than the competition is in quietness of the cabin. The Equinox offers such a quiet ride the occupants feel like they are riding in a much more upscale vehicle than a simple SUV.
