Holden Equinox

The Holden Equinox is the long-awaited mid-size SUV replacement for the Holden Captiva.

From its 2017 launch, the five-seat Equinox arrived with two petrol engines, with the bigger 2.0-litre option being the most powerful in its class. Diesel options arrived later in mid-2018. Like most of its competitors the Equinox is available with either two- or all-wheel drive.

Currently, the Equinox can be had in a variety of flavours from the $26,880 Equinox LT (fwd) to the $32,988 Equinox LT (fwd).

Its rivals include other mid-size SUVs like the Mazda CX-5, Honda CR-V, Volkswagen Tiguan, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, and the Nissan X-Trail.

Holden Equinox Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Equinox here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Does the 2019 Holden Equinox have a timing chain or timing belt?

    All three of the engines used in the Holden Equinox (1.5 turbo-petrol, 2.0 turbo-petrol and 1.6 turbo-diesel) used a timing chain rather than a timing belt. While timing belts usually need periodic replacement, the timing chains fitted to the Holden engine should be good for the life of that engine.

  • Is the Chevrolet Equinox a good and reliable car?

    The Chevrolet (and Holden) Equinox should be a reliable car when driven sympathetically and serviced regularly. For the money there are probably better vehicles for the money in the SUV category in terms of fit and finish, and on-road performance. Ultimately any purchasing choice will come down to personal preference and budget as to what is a better car for you.

Holden Equinox Interior

The Holden Equinox's interior falls short of the styling highs we’ve seen in competitor cars. As shown in our road test review images, its dashboard and overall interior design isn’t as high-tech or sexy as, say, a Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson or Kia Sportage. Although, from the LTZ model up leather-appointed seat trim is standard, and it does have the practicality side of things sorted. 

Shown above are interior details for the Holden Equinox 2019.
