2013 Chevrolet Equinox Quick Facts

Comfortable, composed handling

Good fuel economy with four-cylinder engine

Versatile interior

Good safety and reliability scores

Less cargo space than some rivals

The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox is ranked:

With more power from its optional V6 and a better ride for 2013, the Chevrolet Equinox adds to its appeal as a versatile affordable compact SUV.

The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox receives an all-new V6 engine option, offering more power with equal fuel economy compared with the V6 it replaces. The four-cylinder model is unchanged, and it still retains one of the better fuel economy figures in the class. V6 models also receive some suspension updates for 2013, and reviewers say the changes give the Equinox a more buttoned-down feel on the road.

Overall, critics like the Equinox’s comfortable ride and smooth-shifting automatic transmission. They like the updates to the V6 powertrain, but some maintain that they’d still pick the four-cylinder unit, as it offers adequate power and gets super fuel economy. Good safety and reliability scores also help the 2013 Equinox stand out from the pack.

Reviewers say one of the highlights of the Equinox is its cabin, which they say is spacious, comfortable and well-assembled. While the five-seat Equinox doesn’t have the largest cargo area in the class, they appreciate the flexibility of the sliding second row, which can be moved forward to accommodate more cargo or back to make taller passengers more comfortable. The base trim comes standard with an auxiliary input jack and Bluetooth.

Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system is added to the option list on higher trims.

The Mazda CX-5 has one of the highest fuel economy ratings in the class. Reviewers say that it could use a bit more power, but overall, they are pleased by the CX-5’s sporty, crisp handling. It doesn’t have the most outstanding reliability score in the class, but its safety scores are among the highest.

If you’re looking for something with a third row, the Toyota RAV4 is one of your few options in this class. Critics say it has good performance, especially with its potent V6 engine option. Its four-cylinder fuel economy doesn’t match the Equinox’s, but its V6 does get better mileage than a V6 Equinox.

The RAV4 also has a strong reliability score.
