The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox - low-end price tag, high-end crossover
There’s no wonder the crossover segment has been taking more and more clients away from the sedan and minivan car classes for half a decade now. Their versatility and exceptional value for money are unparalleled.
And so is the case with the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox, a perfect family car.
The mid-size crossover comes with a pleasant, easy-on-the-eyes exterior design that will go down well with any crowd and in any setting.
It's reduced exterior dimensions don't come at the cost of interior comfort as both the front and back passengers enjoy ample leg and headroom, making the Equinox suited for short and long commutes. The trunk has 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space and with the second row of seats folded down, it balloons at 63.9 cubic feet, which will be more than enough for any trip to Ikea or Home Depot.
Under the hood, the 2021 Chevy Equinox comes with a 1.5-liter turbo-4 powertrain that will churn out 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Coupled with a highly responsive 6-speed automatic transmission, that’s enough power to tow up to 1,500 pounds.
As it’s expected of every great family car, the 2021 Chevy Equinox is extremely safe to drive, scoring a perfect 5 stars out of 5 on NHTSA’s overall safety test and bagging a Top Safety Pick designation from IIHS.
That’s mainly because of the great list of active safety standard features the Equinox comes equipped with. All future owners should expect Automatic Emergency Braking, Automatic High-beam Highlights, and Keep Lane Assist with Active Lane Control. In addition to these, buyers can also opt to fit their Equinox with rear parking sensors, Blind-Spot Monitors, and a Surround-View Camera System.
But safety is just part of the equation. If you plan of keeping modern families happy, you better entertain them while on route. That's why the base Equinox comes with standard features such as a 7.0-inch color touch, the latest Chevy infotainment system, and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. If buyers spring for the LT trim, they also get a power driver seat, satellite radio, and keyless start.
With the upcoming 2022 makeover on the horizon, the 2021 rendition of the Equinox attracts through its understanding of the buyer segment it wants to attract. It's a model that tested many features over the years and improved constantly. For budget-conscious consumers, it's impossible to go wrong with Equinox.
If you also need interior space and versatility combined with an urban-agile demeanor, the Equinox hits the spot right on.
