The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is among the most popular compact crossovers, the Chevy has a plentiful passenger room, a feature-laden infotainment system, and athletic handling. Equinox has all-wheel drive and is powered by the same turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Equinox brings more distinctive headlights, a new grille design, and updated front and rear bumpers. Made from durable materials and nicely styled, Equinox’s cabin should inspire broad appeal. Both front- and rear-seat passengers should find themselves comfortable in the spacious interior, with enough luxuries to keep them content on longer trips. It comes standard with chrome exterior trim, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a SiriusXM satellite radio, and more. It also includes blind-spot monitoring, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power liftgate, rear cross-traffic alert, and remote start. The standard six-speed automatic shifts seamlessly, and in the interest of fuel economy, the gearbox is reluctant to downshift when extra power is needed. Agreeable and easy to drive, the Equinox handles competently, and its steering is accurate and direct. The Chevy can also tow up to 3500 pounds when properly equipped. The EPA estimates that the front-wheel-drive Equinox will earn 26 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Adding all-wheel drive reduces both ratings by 1 mpg. We subjected the Equinox to our 75-mph real-world fuel-economy test route and with front-wheel drive, it returned 32 mpg on the highway. A 7.0-inch touchscreen displays Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment interface atop Equinox’s dash; the system continues to impress with its ease of use and quick responses. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, as are Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB connectivity, and an auxiliary input jack.
