Since commuting is unavoidable, why not make it as enjoyable as possible? Behind the wheel of the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox, you will stop dreading your commute and instead start enjoying it. The well-equipped and affordable SUV from Chevy earned a spot on the U.S. News & World Report’s list of the 15 Best Commuter Cars and SUVs of 2021.

All the vehicles on the list boast an MSRP under $25,000, with a few priced under $20,000. The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox starts at $23,800, a great price for the features and tech it offers, according to U.S. News & World Report writer Zach Doell.

“The Equinox has roomy seating and cargo space, a comfortable ride quality, an easy-to-use infotainment system, and loads of standard safety features,” he adds. “This Chevy also earns top marks for predicted reliability.”

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox offers a choice of four trim levels: L, LS, LT, and Premier. Under the hood of the Equinox, a responsive and efficient 1.5-liter turbo engine generates 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque when paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. With this powertrain, the FWD Equinox delivers an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 31 mpg on the highway. This rating helps protect your fuel budget as you make the trek back and forth to work.
