2019 Chevrolet Equinox: Review, Specs and Price in UAE

13.1KViews

The crossover SUV segment is a hotly contested battleground with Japanese cars like Honda CR-V, Nissan X-Trail and Toyota RAV 4 competing for market share.

Chevrolet Equinox’ effortless, sedan-like handling along with SUV-like driving experience make it an interesting choice.

On the outside the 2019 Equinox doesn’t get a significant design update from the 2018 model but its feature-rich cabin comes with all sorts of bells and whistles, from modern infotainment system to cutting edge driver-assistance features.

Significant focus has been on fuel-efficiency to make the Equinox use the least amount of fuel for every kilometer travelled. The 2019 Equinox comes in two engine options, the standard 1.5 liter 4 cylinder, and a quicker, more powerful 2.0 liter 4 cylinder with turbocharge.

Specs:

Engine: 1.5 Litre 4 Cylinder | 2.0 Litre Turbocharged 4 Cylinder
Horsepower: 137 Bhp | 252 Bhp
Torque: 275Nm | 353 Nm
Transmission: 6 Speed Automatic
Seating Capacity: 5 Seater

Exterior:

2019 Equinox carries forward the same design from 2018 with minor tweaks here and there. That doesn’t mean that Equinox design looks dated in anyway. The new headlamps that verge into a wider more aggressive front grille, gives the Equinox a striking bold look. Combined with 17-inch alloy wheels and deep tinted glass makes it a very good looking car.2019 Equinox Small SUV Design: Side Profile

Interior :

Both front and rear passengers are comfortable and well shaped for longer trips.  The rear seats can be a little congested at times, but can fit 3 adults of average height. Storage space on the other hand is merely average on this car.2019 Equinox Small SUV Design: DashboardA 7-inch screen placed at the center top of the dashboard for ease of use.
