Chevy Equinox Makes Cars.com Car Seat Check Honor Roll
A properly installed car seat is a must when you are transporting your kids back and forth. Unfortunately, installing a car seat can be one of the most difficult tasks for a parent. Why is it so hard to get the straps attached, tightened, and in place? And when they finally are, you wonder, is it installed properly? To help alleviate some stress in your parental role, certified car seat technicians at Cars.com reviewed the LATCH systems on 2020 vehicles. According to their assessment, the Chevrolet Equinox made the grade.

“During the Equinox’s Car Seat Check, out car-seat tech called out the well-labeled tether anchors. If it’s not easy to find, parents and caretakers can overlook this critical anchor that’s used with a forward-facing convertible or combination car seat,” according to Cars.com writer Jennifer Newman.
The car seat techs also praised the roominess of Equinox’s back seat, which easily accommodates “rear-facing car seats or long-legged teens.”
The two-row crossover seats five and provides 38.5 inches of headroom, 39.9 inches of legroom, 55.5 inches of shoulder room, and 57.7 inches of hip room in the second row. It boasts a total passenger volume of 103.5 cubic feet.
