Soon 2018 Chevy Equinox will be launched, this redesigned car comes 6 inches shorter and 400 pounds lighter. This car seems a bit confusing to compete in which class. I mean, this SUV is quite expensive like being between Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota Highlander. The size tends to small SUV, but also can not compete with Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, and Toyota RAV4 because of minimal features but the price is too expensive. But do not be underestimated, this car is also a lot of advantages in its class, we find out more below.
2018 Chevy Equinox All New Design
Let’s look at the changes made on the exterior, starting from the fascia that is built thinner. Now the headlamps are designed more sharply and the lattice design is integrated with the headlights. The two grid holes are now fused, separated only by chrome that covers most of the grille. Much better than before that seemed thick and ancient. While the rear also get so many changes, a rear light in the horizontal design follows the bodyline. Designs are a bit more flowing, compared to current models that are slightly boxed. Overall design glimpse of 2018 Chevy Equinox like Nissan Rogue 2017, especially the rear view.
Go inside the cabin, this SUV is so comfortable. This is what I mean, this car also has many advantages. The interior is very quiet even compared to competitors such as CR-V and Rav4, easy to drive, controls that sesponsif. If used for long trips it would be nice because the front seat has an eight-way power adjustment, including two-way lumbar. Spacious back seats and folded flat floors. Some soft-touch materials and a little chrome placed in some places although this does not make it feels luxurious but this is quite helpful comfort.
MyLink infotainment system has also been integrated that can connect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition USB ports are also provided in some places.
2018 Chevy Equinox Engine Changes
I feel the performance of the previous Equinox machine is very bad, the usual visibility. 2018 Chevy Equinox decides not to continue using the V6 engine. They replaced it with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque as standard. This machine is connected to the six-speed automatic transmission. This is better than CR-V and Rav4. The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque driven by a nine-speed automatic transmission will come early next year.
So my conclusion is if you want to buy American products with driving comfort beyond its class competitors then you should buy 2018 Chevy Equinox. Reality is always directly proportional to the price offered. You have to spend more than competitors. As an illustration, an Equinox will only get a complete feature on the trim highest. You will get a power rear liftgate, a huge sunroof, heated seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alerts. The price for all these features is around $ 33,730. Yes, at least you have to pay the price range, it is more expensive than CR-V but better comfort.
