The Equinox has been a solid, spacious, and very configurable entry among family crossover vehicles, and it's simply not as compromised in packaging as a number of other models around this size.
The Ford Escape, for example, has a more engaging driving experience, and it offers more technology, but its interior feels tighter and not as quiet or versatile.
The Subaru Forester is a great alternative, with excellent all-wheel-drive driving dynamics, as well as a considerably better interior than past models.
The Honda CR-V always has reliability on its side, and its interior is also very spacious; although there's no V-6 or engine upgrade.
The Hyundai Tucson is quite a bit smaller inside, and it's due for a refresh.
Otherwise, the GMC Terrain is closely related to the Equinox, but it has more truck-like styling cues—something that some shoppers might prefer.
