The newly redesigned Chevy Equinox is designed to bring drivers peace of mind from the outside in. A steel reinforced safety cage is engineered to hold its shape in the event of an accident whilethe strategically placed front and rear crumple zones are designed to absorb the force of impact, giving cabin occupants a better chance of walking away from a crash.
Chevrolet has also made careful use of advanced systems to make it easier for drivers to monitor the area around the vehicle and prevent incidents, including optional equipment such as Forward Collision Alert, Rear Park Assist, Lane Change Alert, and the Safety Alert Seat, which is designed to vibrate rather than provide audible alerts – the perfect solution for drivers who may not notice the beep of an audible alert when fatigued. Drivers will have access to a standard rearview camera, or upgrade to the available Surround Vision camera system for a full 360-degree composite view of the area behind the rear of the vehicle, allowing drivers to avoid hazards that would otherwise remain hidden. Drivers who choose to finance an Equinox can also take advantage of the innovative Teen Driver system to monitor new drivers, ensuring safety equipment is used properly and pre-set driving parameters are maintained.
