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.
