These monumental changes obviously meant for an all-new design direction, and we’re here to ask if the 2018 Equinox is a looker or a loser in today’s Hot or Not.
We’ll start with the good, at least from our vantage point. The rear of the 2018 Equinox looks good. Really good. Designers are getting pretty talented at skewing consumers into thinking a crossover is really an SUV. That’s apparent in the 2018 Equinox’s rakish rear profile, ditching the round liftgate for, dare we say, something akin to the global Chevrolet Trailblazer. It works.
Up front, it’s a toss-up after discussing with the staff here. We’ve heard Honda HR-V, bloated Cruze hatchback and more. Chevrolet will tell you, though, that the front end design is sleek and slippery. It’s unoffensive, but it may not be the best implementation of Chevy’s latest design face.
The side profile once again looks better from the caboose, as a frontal side profile glance gives off just a smidge of multi-purpose vehicle. It’s not a bad thing, but the side profile is certainly the most awkward angle of the 2018 Equinox.
Overall, the 2018 Equinox exhibits a very coherent design. And its fresh looks will certainly move buyers clamoring for the latest crossover into dealerships. But, it’s your turn to speak up. Vote in our poll and talk to us down below.
