Safety with the 2018 Chevy Equinox
Just as comfort is a major part of the driving experience, so is the feeling of security you have, right? That’s why the 2018 Equinox comes with a ton of standard safety features like antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front side-impact and side curtain airbags, and more.
Also standard is GM’s OnStar emergency communications system that adds automatic crash notification, an emergency assistance button, and stolen vehicle assistance. It really is a nice feeling knowing that GM is a press of a button away in the case you could use some assistance on the road.
For the most high-tec and next-generation safety systems, consider the LT and Premier models and their optional rear parking sensors, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert, and a lane departure warning system.
The Design of the 2018 Chevy Equinox
A wraparound effect is a wonderful thing, and you get it in the Equinox. The dashboard’s contours flow smoothly into the door panels to make you feel like the vehicle is wrapping itself all around you. And as for your passengers in the back, they’ll have an unmatched amount of room and the ability to recline for even more roominess.
And with plenty of Crossover-worthy cargo space available too, you really just can’t go wrong with the 2018 Chevy Equinox.
