2019 Chevrolet Equinox review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?

Fresh off a redesign for the 2018 model year, the Chevrolet Equinox compact SUV seats up to five people and offers a choice of three engines: a 170-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder, a 252-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 137-hp, turbo-diesel 1.6-liter four-cylinder. The Equinox is available with front- or all-wheel drive and competes with the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape and Jeep Cherokee.

What's New on the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?

Adaptive cruise control and front pedestrian braking are available for the high-end Premier trim level. Both the standard backup camera and available 360-degree camera system now deliver high-definition views. Four USB ports are now standard.

What Features in the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox Are Most Important?

The Equinox's standard 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system includes Bluetooth streaming audio as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. It also has 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after initial trial period) to keep your family connected on the go. Options include a power liftgate, power sunroof, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, ventilated front seats and wireless charging. Available active safety features include blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change alert, forward collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist.

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?

The current Equinox is smaller than its predecessor, now closer in size to other compact SUVs. We like its available gas engines, intuitive multimedia systems and child-safety-seat accommodations, but visibility and front-seat comfort could be better. Many active safety features are reserved for higher-end trims, too.
