While defining this category, our editors demanded that the winning vehicle meet a stringent list of requirements: The vehicle had to cost less than $30,000, be available for purchase by the end of 2004, be capable of performing nearly every day-to-day duty imaginable (grocery getter, cross-country cruiser, snow capable, and so on), feature quality componentry with top-notch build quality, and perhaps most importantly, it had to look good. To that extent, no vehicle fit the bill as well as the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox.

The 2005 Chevrolet Equinox, when fully loaded (with every possible option), stickers at just north of $29,000. For your 29-large, you'll get a killer compact luxury SUV that's loaded with features, exudes quality from every nook and cranny, and is downright comfortable and roomy. Our behemoth six-foot-plus editors fit comfortably in both the front and back seats. That's a feat that few vehicles (regardless of size or price) have successfully accomplished.

The Equinox features a 3.4-liter, 185-horsepower V6 with an available on-demand four-wheel drive system (under normal driving conditions the Equinox is front-wheel drive). The list of standard equipment is long, and includes all of the power goodies (windows, locks, mirrors), an AM/FM stereo with CD player, cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels, and an ingenious rear storage system.

Publisher Charlie Romero commented, "The Equinox offers outstanding versatility with a price point that makes it impossible to ignore." Editor-In-Chief Steve Litscher added, "The Chevrolet Equinox has officially raised the bar for all SUVs in terms of comfort, quality and price."
