The 2011 Chevrolet Equinox competes against some of the strongest-selling crossover vehicles on the market.
In size and mission, it’s a lot like the Ford Escape, which also offers four- and six-cylinder engines, as well as a Hybrid version.
The Escape gets worse gas mileage and feels less substantial in some ways, but it’s a safe bargain.
The Honda CR-V is another best-seller with tried and true benefits like reliability and pert handling, though its sole engine is a four-cylinder that strains a little to perform.
The latest Subaru Forester is rounder in shape and wider in reach; it’s won some big awards and rightly so.
Its nimble performance is now equaled by a soft exterior and a high-quality interior, though it still falls behind in features.
The Hyundai Tucson is also now a formidable rival, also with great fuel economy, but its steering and ride aren’t quite as well-balanced as that of the Equinox.
