EXECUTIVE ROGER HART: Spend a bit of time in the driver’s seat of the Chevrolet Equinox LTZ, and you can see why Motors has such a short supply of these. The interior is straight-forward and handsome. The design is functional than luxurious, but is a $33,000 ute.

The ride is and surprisingly quiet. The only creeping into the cabin was of tires on the pavement. I would a bit more side bolster the seats, but again, put into the seat will fit the majority of just fine.

Power from the 3.0-liter V6 is although in the slippery snow morning having AWD would been nice. Five out of my driveway and the front tires spinning and traction control was feverishly. But there was little during the rest of the commute to the

Overall, this is a handsome ute/crossover that is comfortable and affordable.

EXECUTIVE EDITOR BOB I’m a little surprised $33,000 doesn’t buy all-wheel-drive in an but that quibble aside, is a well-equipped and well-done small vehicle. The V6 pulls hard, in because the … holds surprisingly deep into the rev Combined with a solid the overall effect is one of a far sportier than you might expect in a ute.

At the same time, posting 24 mpg in around-town driving is quite for a V6. If I have any complaint with the it’s that the brake feels soft and takes getting used to.

This as equipped, comes with a of goodies, from the big, seven-inch navigation screen to climate control and seat to the aforementioned uplevel V6. There’s room in all seats and for cargo, lots of flexibility built in the 60/40 folding back

I played around with the collision warning/lane-departure system and that on the middle collision-warning setting it provides some without being a nanny. On the setting, I think it’d be too for most drivers to react in and on the longest setting it seems as if the is steadily on, so you tend to disregard it a while.

I’m not sure of the of this, except to drivers who a lot of their time distracted by or other pursuits instead of If you tend to stay alert and at the obstacles ahead of your you could skip this and $295. I never detected any warning, so I must have done anything to make it

Given all of the pluses, and the fact few buyers in America really an all-wheel-drive vehicle, I like package as offered. It still pricey, but it is properly equipped for the of the market.

NEWS EDITOR MIGLIORE: The 2012 Chevrolet LTZ is an excellent vehicle for the chilly in the upper Midwest. It’s decent-sized and well equipped. It nicely and in a manner that consumers would appreciate.

The looks and feels premium, for the part, with comfortable The V6 engine is decent, though the units I’ve sampled in ute have always been up to the as well. The chassis is well and comfortable, and for small ute it’s proportioned. Acceleration is respectable, and I was to defeat slower traffic jockeying for space on a service

I like the Equinox. It’s a competitor in this segment.
