IIHS Names 2020 Chevy Equinox a Top Safety Pick
For any adventure the Chevy Equinox delivers a dependable performance, advanced connectivity tech to help keep you and your passengers entertained, and a well-appointed cabin that makes the journey comfy. When equipped with specific headlights, the 2020 Chevy Equinox also earns bragging rights as a 2019 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Advanced safety features makes this adventure-ready and family-friendly SUV a top pick for drivers who love to drive.
According to the IIHS, “The 2020 Equinox comes standard with high-beam assist, a system that automatically switches between high beams and low beams, depending on the presence of other vehicles. Vehicles can earn extra credit in Institute headlight tests for having high-beam assist because research has shown that drivers don’t use high beams as often as they should. The safety feature helps the Equinox’s available HID projector headlights earn an acceptable rating.”
In all six of the crashworthiness tests put forth by the IIHS, the 2020 Equinox earned a “good” rating.
The 2020 Equinox comfortably seats up to five and offers approximately 63.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo space when rear seats are folded, allowing for ample room for road trip gear, project materials, or groceries.
When powered by the 1.5-liter engine, the Equinox delivers an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 31 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in the city. If towing gear is important to you, opt for the 2.0-liter engine and trailering package, which allows the 2020 Equinox to trailer a maximum weight of 3,500 pounds.
