The Equinox comes with forward collision warning, pedestrian detection and automatic high beams and emergency braking. All of these safety features come standard for all trims. Top-drawer models can be fitted with rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, and a surround-view camera system. The interior also looks very nice, with plenty of cupholders, leg room, and great storage space that can still fit some carry on bags.

The digital instruments at the front of the car contain a nine inch touchscreen, a heads up display, and a high tech interior. You can connect your phone and bluetooth to the car stereo, listen to podcasts and music with the effective sound system, and access to Apple CarPlay,
It also has a semi-automated driving feature, and other standard safety features. Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have weighed in on the safety of the 2021 Rogue. Still the safety features that are included standard are able to help it compete with the other rivals in the auto industry.
It also comes with storage cubbies, cupholders, and a bi-level dashboard that can help to improve your usability and the functionality of the car. Higher level trims contain three zone climate control, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel as well.
It also has a roomy backseat, storage and luggage space, and plenty of legroom. Additionally, it also comes with a 2.5 liter engine that revs up at 181 horses and gets pretty loud if you are pushing on the acceleration. Still, the engine is very easy to handle and will get you up to 60 mph in about 8 seconds. It’s a great car no matter where you plan to be driving, and it will stick with you no matter what.
What Trims Should I Get?
We’ve talked about the two different types of cars, mostly focusing on their basic trims and standard packages. However, both cars also have different models that come with various features. The Rogue has a platinum model that has a 12.3 inch reconfigurable digital gauge cluster and a 10.8 inch heads up display for instance. A platinum rogue also comes with genuine leather upholstery as well.
The Chevy Equinox comes with several trim levels as well, with both a midnight and a sport edition. The Midnight edition has 19 inches gloss black aluminum wheels, bowtie emblems, and all season blackwall tires that are 19 inches. The Sport edition includes the same benefits, but also gives you a sporty look as well.
The trim levels you get will be dependent on your budget and the various amenities that you need. Take a look at each of the trim levels and see if there’s anything you need, and if it’s within your range.
