In short, the design and styling of the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox aren't particularly edgy, but the look is what it needs to be considering the family-oriented mission.

Taking the whole design in from the outside, the Equinox impresses as a sort of scaled-down version of the big Chevrolet Traverse three-row crossover. If anything, the Equinox is just a little chunkier, with perhaps just a little more hints from Chevy's trucks filtering into the more upright flanks. That said, the Equinox design looks more car than truck, ultimately, and it still fits in well alongside the brand's sedans, with nicely done proportions and sharp, careful detailing.

The spacing of the headlights next to the grille help it look a bit like a tall station wagon from some angles, while edgy details over a rounded tail do help the Equinox stand out in a pack of look-alike crossover choices.

The interior of the 2014 Equinox isn't quite as in pace with the rest of the Chevy lineup; it's a little overt, and a different variation on the theme, but it fits well with the exterior. The center stack of the instrument panel, with its vents neatly flanking and framing central controls, bears some likeness to that of the Chevrolet Sonic and Cruze--and also to that of the Cadillac SRX.

The 2014 model year brings two new colors--Red Rock Metallic and Silver Topaz Metallic--and chrome-clad wheels are newly standard on top LTZ models.

Conclusion

The interior of the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox is quite carlike, but you can see just a bit of influence from Chevy trucks on the outside.

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.
