You’ll also be able to take more with you on the go. This 5-passenger vehicle is spacious on the inside, giving you up to 1809 L of interior cargo space and 60/40 split rear seat fold-down capability and smart storage solutions. A hidden storage compartment under the rear floor allows you to hide cargo as well as reduce interior clutter. You’ll be ready to hit the road easily and comfortably in no time.
The exterior is an excellent pairing of style and function, with sleek sculpting and modern accents.

But smart technology doesn’t stop with entertainment. It helps with safety, too. The 2020 Equinox is designed to keep you and your passengers safe in so many ways.

You can ensure that even the newest drivers in your family are in great hands with GM’s Teen Driver safety feature.

This safety option is designed to promote long-lasting safe driving habits, especially for new drivers.
Teen Driver can be controlled, activated and deactivated through your smartphone using the MyChevrolet app. You will be notified when Teen Driver has been activated through smartphone alerts, so you’ll always know that your driver has safely entered the vehicle.
