Handles like a midsize car even though it looks like a sports utility vehicle (SUV).

I am only a passenger - I like that I can raise or lower my seat. The lighted vanity mirror is really handy. I love the blindspot assist in the mirror and the back up camera. Having OnStar is a great crutch, especially since we are older driver & passenger. I dislike the lack of a "sunshade" for the all important touch screen. Our previous Equinox (2010) had everything just right for us. We traded it in order to get the more advanced safety features. This new one has the cargo door release on the driver's door so the passenger can't assist the person trying to open it. The second row seat is stationary. When our grandchildren rode with us I could barely reach them from the front seat. The rearview mirror is a manual day/night switch. There is no longer a navigation program - you must have a smartphone in order to transfer your driving map or contact OnStar and ask for their navigation to be sent to your car. There are enough issues that we decided within the first 60 days we would trade it much sooner than any of our other vehicles. It is very reliable and our local dealership is great.

iPhone friendly mid size vehicle that is comfortable and easy to drive.

I love my vehicle! The drive is so smooth and it is easy to use. I do not need to physically put the key in the ignition, it just needs to be in the car. I also do not need to use my key to unlock the car, as long as it is on me, the door will open for me! That is a major convenience when my keys are at the bottom of my bag and my hands are full! The driver side has electric seat adjustments. My iPhone plugs directly into the car and my navigation system and music streaming apps show up on the screen! I can even text by speaking to the car. It also hooks up to Bluetooth, so if you forgot your cord you can still hear the directions from your speakers. The car is sleek, has a lot of space for groceries and luggage for long trips, but small enough that it is easy to find parking. It also has a rear view camera to assist with parking, no more issues parallel parking!

2018 emerald Equinox feat. -4g Wi-Fi & OnStar. + USB. All in all-a great vehicle.

The 2018 Equinox drives perfectly in all weather. The seating in very comfortable in the front 2 seats, that can be heated and the 3 seat in back has a middle section that pulls down to a cup holder for 2 and table. The trunk area is roomy and has hidden compartments for storage. There many USB charging area throughout the vehicle. The sunroof opens up from the front to the beginning of trunk area. The roof opens up in the front only. The vehicle is loaded with 4g Wi-Fi (with activation) OnStar is allowed loaded (with activation) both came with a 6 mo. Free service when vehicle was bought. This vehicle is a one-of-a-kind color, emerald green. In my state only 2 were shipped here in 8/2017. Vehicle also has an auto engine stop when car in idling. Very safe, reliable, comfortable, useful SUV I have ever owned.
