Almost all the people who drive this car for the first time have a very good and amazing impression about the car. One of the nice improvements that are noted in the car is the way it handles. Every one feels very much comfortable with the steering. There is also no need for you to turn your body very much in order to turn the car. You will be able to go on for a vey smooth ride without too much of concerns or worry. There is no need for you to be annoyed due to the sound that is produced from outside when you are driving as in some of the other cars that is available in the market. This is mainly because of the four cylinder engine that is used. This engine is very much improved and refined than the previous editions as they do not produce hardly any sound.

Most of the people choose the four cylinder engines for their car as this is very easy for the driver to pick up pace in a very short span of time which is lacking in the six speed transmissions. This is suitable when you like to climb the hills or any maneuvers. The average fuel economic ratings for the four cylinder style are about 24 mpg while for the v six is 21 mpg. it is important that you should not believe the advertisements which shows the fuel economic ratings as 32 mpg where even the 30 mark is really a far cry to attain.

The finishing and the outlook of the Chevrolet equinox car 2010 are much better and attractive than the current version which is available in the market. But you should be carful when you are handling the sharp edges of the plastic in the Chevrolet equinox car 2010. The seats can be adjusted according to the needs of the people. The interiors are very spacious that is really a great advantage of the car over the others that are available in the market these days. The rear view camera that is available will be of great help to you when you are going to park your vehicle. You will note that the controls are very easy to handle and use which is pleasing to hear for most people.
