2014 Chevrolet Equinox Review
The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox 2014 is definitely an affordable compact SUV that does not make the top 5 list of the year. However, according to many reviewers out there, it is in the top 10. The 2 rows crossover SUV may be an interesting pick for some buyers.
The things that we like with the Chevrolet Equinox 2014 are the really ride smooth, the powerful V6 engine and the really roomy seats that are included.
The standard engine included in the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox is a 4 cylinder model. It is not that great of an option because of the fact that it is not as powerful as it should be. The optional V6 engine has to be preferred as it offers much more additional power.
If you opt for the base engine, you will get a mixed fuel consumption that is 22-32 for city-highway. This is quite good in the affordable compact SUV market. However, the power factor is obviously not what you would like. The automotive journalists love the comfortable ride of the Equinox, which comes with adequate handling. Even so, we do have more athletic SUV models on the market in the Mazda CX-5 and the Ford Escape. When compared with them, Equinox is not that fun to drive.
The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox offers a spacious, attractive cabin that is pretty well-built and includes only high quality materials. Both the rear and front seats are really comfortable and roomy. When referring to the cargo amount offered, we have quite enough for this class, although the amount is a little lower than with some of the rivals, with Honda CR-V 2014 being a good example.
The standard audio system included is a 6 speaker system that includes USB and auxiliary ports, together with Bluetooth and satellite radio. The extra features will include heated front seats and leather upholstery. You can put your hands on the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, rear-seat entertainment system, backup camera, lane departure warning, power liftgate, forward collision alert and navigation.
On the whole, we are looking at quite a worthy choice if you want something with nice highway ride and the V6 engine is definitely a good option. When you want to have a comfortable ride, you will be able to enjoy what you are offered but there are other opportunities that are available. The V6 is definitely a good improvement.
