Powerful compact crossover that seats five; sharp-looking exterior with strong lines; stylish interior with ambient lighting
Starting at $23,185, the 2010 Chevy Equinox is one of the most affordable vehicles in its class, which includes competitors Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. The interior features a dual-cockpit design, ice-blue ambient lighting and other accents that turns up the class and appeal of the Equinox. Storage areas are everywhere in the cabin, such as an oversized glove box, a closed storage bin in the instrument panel above the center stack, and a closed storage bin under the center armrest large enough for a laptop computer. The rear seats again in 2010 feature MultiFlex, which allows the seats to move back and forth a total of eight inches for the best rear legroom in the segment. The 2010 Equinox features rocker panels integrated into the doors, narrowing the area over which a passenger must step. The body is now stiffened with single-piece side stampings plus high-strength steel in critical areas. In addition to the change in engine size, the Equinox' steering system on the 4-cylinder model is rack-mounted but electrically power-assisted, which has dramatically improved efficiency.
