Chevrolet Equinox (MPG: 22/32; MSRP: $23,530)

Chevrolet Equinox

Built and introduced in 2004 for the 2005 model year by General Motors, Chevrolet Equinox is a mid-size crossover SUV. Based on General Motors’s Theta unibody platform, the Equinox comes with different engine variants, though the 2.4 L four-cylinder base engine with 182 hp and a six-speed automatic transmission with Eco mode is impressive enough, making the optional V6 avoidable. Optional all-wheel-drive models provide secured performance on snow or icy or wet roads. For added safety, you can also have front collision-warning & lane departure systems. With foldable rear seats and super-comfort spacious interior and cargo space, it can sit four adult passengers and also comes with baby-seat flexibility.
