Expert Quotes:

bold modern look that's more muscular and better proportioned
Autoblog

We yearn for the day when GM finally understands that chrome isn't cool anymore.
Edmunds

Its new skin is seriously sexy—smooth and cool like “Equinox,” the Coltrane blues standard.

a clean, modern look, which is simultaneously inoffensive and handsome
Jalopnik

the dual-cowl dashboard layout is attractive and classy
Edmunds

With nicely done proportions and sharp, careful detailing, the Chevrolet Equinox now fits in much more closely with the Chevrolet car lineup than with Chevy's SUVs like the Tahoe and Suburban. And for families looking for good, practical, stylish transportation, that's not at all a bad thing.

From a few paces away, the Equinox in itself looks more like a sort of like a scaled-down version of the Chevrolet Traverse now. We appreciate the better-detailed front and rear appearance, combined with a softened look in between, that this model received a few years ago, and it still manages to look quite fresh. The spacing of the headlights next to the grille help it look more like a tall station wagon than before, while edgy details over a rounded tail help verge away from a pack of look-alike crossover choices.

Inside, the 2013 Equinox seems a little overt for Chevy, but once you're accustomed to the cabin, it fits in well with the exterior. Elements of the instrument-panel center stack (also filtering down to the Sonic and Cruze) come strikingly close to those of the Cadillac SRX—with vents flanking the radio and climate controls.

The 2013 model year brings a refreshed lineup of colors, including Champagne Silver Metallic, Atlantic Metallic, and Tungsten Metallic, while interior color and trim combinations are mostly carried over.

Conclusion

The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox is unmistakeably a Chevy on the outside, while it has a sleeker, more carlike cabin.

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.
