Independent 2020 Chevrolet Equinox Reviews: Let’s dig through them.
You have been through the specifications on various websites and you liked what you read. Or you just love how it looks. The price is within your budget and you’re ready to go to the local Chevy dealer. But first… Lets check what current owners think about the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox.
Do not waste your time, I have compiled a list of pro’s and con’s as given by actual owners on various car review websites.
What’s good about the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox?
One of the stated pro’s is the fact that this car is 100% US built. Most owners seem to be OK with the performance of the Chevy Equinox. The style of the car is often noted as a big plus. It is also quite roomy for a subcompact SUV.
This is a compact SUV with all wheel drive. Many subcompact SUV’s do not offer AWD, so this is a great feature. Especially in warmer climates. Comfort seems to be stated a lot by owners, this Equinox is a comfortable ride.
What’s bad about the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox?
We hear a lot of complaints about the entertainment systems and mainly the bluetooth functionality. Affected owners don’t seem to be helped by their car dealerships.
Others also complain about the lack of power of this SUV. As this is a subcompact SUV this is however to be expected.
Diver assist systems seem to be sub par.
Poor gas mileage is also often mentioned. It is not even near the official stated mileage. This is a common issue with car manufacturers. The official 28 Miles Per Gallon seem far fetched.
Uncomfortable seats that do not offer enough support.
One in five owners rate the car quite negatively, with statements as: “worst SUV ever” and “Not Worth Buying“.
Is this in line with what experts say?
With a 5 out of 5 safety rating the safety of the Equinox is not a concern. They like the impressive towing rate for this vehicle. Professional reviewers confirm that the base engine is not good enough and that the fuel economy is not as good as the competition.
Based on the reviews it seems to us that the Equinox offers a good value.
Still convinced? Hit the dealership and go for a test drive! Our maybe wait for the next model year.
