With its comfortable ride, spacious interior and strong safety scores, the Chevrolet Equinox is a top choice among used compact SUVs.
Roomy front and back seats
Excellent fuel economy with four-cylinder engine
Solid safety ratings
When it was new, critics praised the five-seat 2011 Equinox for its voluminous interior, saying that there’s plenty of space for passengers and cargo. Most reviewers agreed that the Equinox is a well-rounded SUV that is free from major faults. It also has strong safety scores, which helps it rank highly within its class.
Inside, critics said the Equinox offered a quiet and comfortable cabin, with seats that are supportive and comfortable for long duration drives. Reviewers especially liked the sliding rear seats that can be moved back to increase rear passenger legroom or forward to accommodate more cargo. With the rear seats folded, the Equinox can carry up to 63.7 cubic feet of cargo, which trails the largest cargo areas in the class, but is still fairly good overall.
