2010 Chevrolet Equinox

New: A brand-new look and a four-cylinder at last.
Noteworthy: Chevrolet's compact crossover finally has a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine, a necessity that was noticeably absent from the last generation. Thanks to direct injection and a six-speed automatic transmission, the engine returns a solid 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Buyers seeking better acceleration can opt for the direct-injection V-6. The high-quality interior offers style far beyond its Asian competitors. There's an expansive list of options to fill the Equinox with requisite technology, including navigation, Bluetooth, a power liftgate, and a dual-screen rear entertainment system. The rear seats slide almost eight inches for juggling cargo and passenger space.
