The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox is a comfortable SUV that's starting to show its age

The Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV that sits between the smaller Chevy Trailblazer and the larger Blazer. It competes in a class that has an entry from nearly every automaker, with vehicles such as the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4, and more.

This third-generation Equinox body style has been around since 2018, so it's getting a bit long in the tooth compared to more recent offerings from other automakers. Among the minor changes to the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox are two new shades of blue paint, standard heated seats, LED headlights across the lineup, and a power liftgate on LT trims. Additionally, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert are now standard on LT, RS, and Premier trims and can also be found on some base LS trims.

Overall, the Equinox will suit shoppers looking for a stylish, comfortable compact SUV with an intuitive tech interface. Some drawbacks include a basic-looking interior with disappointing materials quality and a smaller cargo area than its competitors.

5 reasons to buy the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox

What We Like 

  • Ride comfort: The Equinox's compliant suspension absorbs most ruts and bumps on the road and doesn't transmit much harshness into the cabin, which is especially impressive when you consider how well the Equinox handles. The front seats are well shaped for long hours on the road and the rear seats offer good thigh support.  

  • Good audio and software interface: The Equinox has plenty of tech features that are standard throughout the lineup, including Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Chevy infotainment system is also easy to use. The Premier trim has six USB ports and a wireless charging pad to keep your devices topped off. Models equipped with the Bose® audio system provided surprisingly powerful sound with excellent clarity.  

  • Nimble handling: The Equinox is capable and balanced on winding mountain roads. The handling limits are surprisingly high and make for easy driving in these conditions. It is nearly as fun to drive as the class-leading Mazda CX-5. 

What Needs Improvement 

  • Small cargo area: The Chevy Equinox comes up a little short on cargo space compared to most of its competitors. Behind the rear seats, there’s 29.9 cubic feet of space, which isn’t bad, but most vehicles in this class are in the mid-30s, and some have nearly 40 cubic feet of space.
