2020 Chevy Equinox a Top Safety Pick
Safety is a big concern for large vehicles like SUVs and trucks. Not only can these vehicles hold more of your family members and loved ones, creating a greater safety concern, but they can also hold more heavy equipment and cargo, creating a greater safety risk. Therefore, buyers are more likely to look at safety ratings when making a decision about these types of vehicles.
Chevrolet knows this well, and it has responded to the call by creating a safer version of the Chevy Equinox. The 2020 Equinox has just been named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which is an improvement over the 2019, which did not get that safety designation.
The Chevy Equinox has always been a safe vehicle, but last year’s model failed to get the right scoring on its safety tests primarily because of poor headlights. The Equinox came with only one option for headlights, and those were rated “marginal” by the IIHS. The 2020 model upgraded the headlights on the LT trim level, and those lights earned a rating of “acceptable.” The bump put the overall score for the Equinox where it needed to be to be named a Top Safety Pick.
Of course, the headlights are not the only safety feature on the 2020 Equinox. The stylish SUV also has features like automatic emergency braking to prevent a front collision, pedestrian detection with automatic braking, high beam assistance, and more.
In addition to its safety features, the 2020 Chevy Equinox also earned top markings in its crash tests. It earned positive scores across the board for the small overlap crash on the front driver and passenger sides, moderate overlap front crashes, and side impacts. It also earned good marks for roof strength and for the quality and strength of the head restraints and seats.
Choosing the 2020 Chevy Equinox.
The 2020 Chevy Equinox has a lot of other great features to recommend it besides its safety features.
