Is the minivan dead? Maybe. What about the advancement of new crossover vehicles? There’s no doubt that the Equinox’s competition has only improved since hitting the market, yet the Equinox took the top spot in Cars.com’s $29,000 SUV Shootout against the redesigned Kia Sportage, Dodge Journey and six other SUVs. The Equinox‘s family-friendly features, premium interior feel and value were the clear winners here.

Equinox is Great on Road Trips

With its great highway manners, the Equinox excels on road trips. I’ve driven the Equinox  for long distances on highways with posted speed limits of 70 mph. The Equinox tracks straight and true at those speeds, rarely requiring course correction from the steering wheel. It’s also quiet and comfortable at 70 mph, with a compliant ride.

Equinox is Safe

The Equinox is a Top Safety Pick at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It scored the agency’s best rating, Good, in front-, rear- and side-impact crash tests, as well as in a roof-strength test.2011 Chevrolet Equinox, coweta gm, georgia gmc, newnan buick, newnan cadillac, newnan georgia, southtowne, southtowne Cadillac, southtowne GM Superstore, your dealer for life

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Equinox four out of five stars overall using its revised testing procedures for 2011. In frontal and rollover tests, the Equinox received four out of five stars, and it earned five out of five stars in side crash tests. That’s pretty impressive.

Standard safety equipment includes front airbags, side-impact airbags mounted in the front seats, and side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. An electronic stability system, antilock brakes and six months of OnStar with automatic crash response are also standard. However, a paid subscription is required after the initial trial period.

Equinox is Affordable

Buyers don’t have to spend the steep $34,000 as-tested price of an LTZ to get what makes the Equinox a great crossover SUV. The Equinox’s greatest attributes are just as present on less-expensive trim levels, and as the Cars.com $29,000 SUV Shootout proved, the Equinox has the right stuff to be competitive in the sub-$30,000 price range. The lower-priced LS and LT models offer the most bang for the buck in the Equinox lineup, with great interior fit and finish, high-quality materials and an isolated experience from the road compared with crossovers in the $20,000 to $30,000 range. Plus, the Equinox’s most family-friendly features aren’t limited to just the LTZ.

The over all opinion is that the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox gives more crossover for your cash. It’s a true family vehicle with all the options and appointments you’d need to keep the family both safe and entertained. Say good bye to the, “are we there yet”s!
