The 2015 Chevy Equinox is a worthy choice for a small crossover SUV, particularly if you're interested in one with a nice highway ride.
This Equinox is equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that puts out 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. It accelerates from zero to 60 mph in about 9.8 seconds and the EPA estimates 26 mpg combined (22 city/32 highway).
The inside of the 2015 Equinox is generally stylish and well laid out. 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.
Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, keyless entry, air-conditioning, cloth upholstery, a driver seat with power height adjustment, a 60/40-split second-row seat that slides and reclines, cruise control, a trip computer and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, heated mirrors, rear privacy glass, roof rack side rails, premium cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rearview camera.
In terms of onboard electronics, the Equinox includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, OnStar communications, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, an auxiliary audio input jack and an iPod/USB interface are also standard.
Safety features include antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags. Also standard is GM's OnStar emergency communications system, which includes automatic crash notification, an emergency assistance button, remote door unlock and stolen vehicle assistance.
