If you’re looking to keep road noise from infiltrating your car’s cabin, you should get behind the wheel of the 2020 Chevy Equinox.

According to Lopez, “Consumer Reports describes the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox as ‘one of the roomiest compact SUVs available,’ adding that it had a ‘subdued engine hum, and there’s little road and wind noise. We found that the ride absorbed bumps and pavement imperfections quite well. Handling is responsive and secure.”

The Active Noise Cancellation tech in the 2020 Chevy Equinox banishes road and engine noise and the well-appointed cabin provides comfy seating for five. An available eight-way power driver seat delivers customized support while the available heated driver and front passenger seats offer warmth on chilly days. The available dual-zone automatic climate control helps keep everyone content and the available perforated leather-appointed seat trim adds comfort and sophistication to the cabin.
