The Suzuki Equator offers a features list that is very clearly targeted at the adventurous type, so those looking for any vestiges of luxury should probably spend their time elsewhere.'s research shows that the 2009 Suzuki Equator offers a functional, if not overly impressive, standard features list. In the back, as noted by Motor Trend, the Suzuki Equator's "truck bed benefits from Nissan's Utili-track bedrail system and spray-on bedliner," two features that prove to be invaluable if you plan on using the bed frequently. Consumer Guide finds that base trim 2009 Suzuki Equators come with "cloth upholstery, front bucket seats, [and a] fold-flat passenger seat," though you'll have to spring for the Comfort trim if you want standard "air conditioning [and] AM/FM/CD player." Consumer Guide also reports that the Suzuki Equator Premium adds full power accessories and "tilt steering wheel [and] cruise control," while upgrading to the RMZ-4 trim brings a "leather-wrapped steering wheel, driver-seat height and lumbar adjustment, Rockford Fosgate AM/FM radio w/in-dash six-disc CD/MP3 changer [and] digital-media player connection."

One of the benefits of rebadging a truck is that you instantly have access to all of the aftermarket parts designed for the original, which in this case is the Nissan Frontier. Among those optional features, reports that 2009 Suzuki Equator owners can choose from "a full range of accessories and options best suited to bike, ATV and/or motorboat owners." For Suzuki, 2009 also marks the introduction of what calls "a unique touch-screen GPS navigation system, called Suzuki TRIP, that can be removed from the vehicle and taken on a boat or to a campsite." Another feature of the Suzuki 2009 Equator that reviewers love is the seven-year/1000,000-mile warranty, which Autoblog points out "is superior to the Nissan's five-year/60,000-mile coverage." Car and Driver reviewers also praise "the availability of a long list of custom accessories right at launch."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
