Equinox Is A Great Family Car Overall — Chevy Equinox is a great mid sized SUV, with spacious trunk, good sized passenger seats and a rear camera to assist with backing up. It's fuel efficient (mileage is as good as my chevy impala) and it's quiet, as well as being flex fuel equipped.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The Equinox has great handling, great amenities and great mileage

Cons: air conditioning is only in the front seat, so it gets hotter/colder in the back seats
