For people who don’t know me, I’m a rather large guy in 3 dimensions. I’m tall (just about 6’0) and round (north of 400 lbs).
My truck (2010 Ford F-150) recently had its warranty expire, and it was beginning to show problems resulting from both its age (8 years) and the accidents its been in (1 major, 2 minor). It also had HORRIBLE gas mileage on my daily commute (from Hiram, GA to Buckhead in Atlanta, GA — it averaged between 8 mpg and 14 mpg). So.. I convinced the wife to let me trade it in for something more economical.
And so we got the 2018 Chevy Equinox. It’s a compact SUV, same class as your Toyota Rav4 or Honda CR-V.
My fat fits perfectly. It’s a little snug on the sides, but not horribly so. The steering wheel doesn’t touch my gut or my knees. The seat belt actually fits! (It didn’t even in my F-150). I can reach the pedals just fine.
I highly recommend it for other large people looking for a compact SUV.
