A refreshed front end highlights the changes to the 2021 Equinox. The makeover brings more distinctive headlights, a new grille design, and updated front and rear bumpers. Chevy also adds an RS model, which includes sporty styling cues such as dark 19-inch wheels and blacked-out exterior trim. Its interior boasts a unique shift knob, red stitching, and black upholstery. The top-tier Premier also has spiffier cabin details, such as French stitching and gloss-black trim on the console.

Pros
Tons of passenger space,
agile on-road behavior,
generous infotainment features.

Weak four-cylinder engine,
pricier than most rivals,
