    Expert Rating

    4.7 (Excellent)
    MPG
    21 City / 31 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 Chevrolet Equinox OVERVIEW

    Now in its second decade on the market, Chevrolet’s compact crossover SUV continues to capture a steady stream of buyers. Bigger and heavier than most competitors, the five-passenger Equinox runs smoothly and quietly, coming with a choice of four-cylinder or V6 power. In one of the upper trim levels, with a few options, it could serve as alternative to a full-size family vehicle that costs far more.

    What's New for 2016

    Freshening of the exterior includes new front and rear fascias, a chrome-accented dual-port grille, and projector-beam headlights. LT and LTZ models have new LED daytime running lamps, as well as newly available Side Blind Zone and Rear Cross Traffic alerts. A seven-inch touchscreen radio goes into L and LS trims.

    Choosing Your Chevrolet Equinox

    Five occupants can relax in an Equinox, helped by a back seat that slides and reclines, as well as a blissfully quiet cabin. Ride quality earns high marks, too.

    The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine makes 182 horsepower; with a fuel-economy estimate of 22 mpg in city driving and 32 mpg on the highway. With the available 301-horsepower 3.6-liter V6, an Equinox can tow up to 3,500 pounds. The V6 gets a decidedly non-thrifty estimate of 17/24 mpg (city/highway). Both engines mate with a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive may be added to any trim level except the base L, dropping gas mileage estimates to 20/29 mpg with the four-cylinder and 16/23 mpg for the V6.

    The previous 1LT and 2LT trim are gone, leaving four levels: budget-minded L (new this year), LS, LT, and top LTZ.

    L

    Despite being the new entry-level Equinox, the L edition is surprisingly well-equipped. Standard equipment includes air conditioning; a rearview camera; a seven-inch color touchscreen stereo with six speakers, MP3, USB port and iPod support; cloth upholstery; tilt/telescopic steering column; remote keyless entry; OnStar with 4G LTE; and 17-inch aluminum wheels.

    LS

    The first step-up trim level comes with SiriusXM satellite radio, a compass, and carpeted rear seats. A power driver's seat and a cargo cover are available.

    LT

    Next up, the LT adds MyLink radio with SiriusXM Bluetooth streaming audio, and voice activation; roof rails; LED daytime running lamps; and power heated mirrors. Automatic climate control is available. Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are optional.

    LTZ

    Topping the lineup, the LTZ includes automatic climate control, perforated leather-appointed seat trim, heated front seats, remote start, foglamps, power driver's seat, cargo net and cover, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and 18-inch alloy wheels. LTZ models with V6 have a firmer suspension.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Some observers liked the previous Equinox look, but the 2016 revisions give it a cleaner, more modern appearance. Sticking to the middle is usually the prudent way to buy, picking either an LS or an LT. In this case, neither of those trim levels adds all that much to the basic L edition. For those who do want more, better to pick a fully-loaded LTZ than to check off additional options on an LT.
