The American-derived five-seat Equinox will be offered in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive and is certainly much easier on the eye than the vehicle it replaces – Holden’s Korean-sourced Captiva.
North American media reports have the all-new Equinox 100mm shorter than the previous generation but delivering enhanced interior space. In fact the all-new Equinox runs a 2857mm wheelbase, surpassing the seven-seat Captiva in that measurement.
That translates into a cargo capacity of 846-litres (rear seat in-place) or 1,798-litres (rear seat folded flat).
The new Chevrolet Equinox is also 180kgs lighter than the superseded model.
An all-turbocharged four-cylinder engine lineup powers the Chevrolet Equinox in North America - a 1.6-litre diesel, 2.0-litre petrol or 1.5-litre petrol - and driving through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
