2020 Chevrolet Equinox | Woburn, MA

A quiet interior cabin makes for calm driving, easy conversation, and peaceful time to yourself. Chevrolet understands the importance of building cars you want to spend your time in. Their commitment was validated when Consumer Reports named the 2020 Chevy Equinox as one of the 5 Quietest Compact SUVs.

Advanced Technology

The 2020 Chevy Equinox is a compact crossover SUV which you should look for if you want to keep outside noises out. Upon naming the Equinox as one of 5 Quietest Compact SUVs, Consumer Reports said the vehicle has a “subdued engine hum, and there’s little road and wind noise. We found that the ride absorbed bumps and pavement imperfections quite well.”

The 2020 Equinox is equipped with Active Noise Cancellation technology, which works to block out engine noise and sounds from the road so you can pay full attention to conversation, music, and the road ahead.

Comfort For Everyone

A quiet and peaceful cabin doesn’t mean much if its passengers aren’t comfortable. Consumer Reports also described the 2020 Equinox as “one of the roomiest compact SUVs available.” The Equinox seats five and an eight-way power driver seat offers configurable support while heated driver and front passenger seats keep you warm in the quiet Chevy SUV.

2020 Chevy Equinox Awarded Top Safety Pick by IIHS

2020 Chevrolet Equinox | IIHS Safety Pick

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced that the new 2020 Chevrolet Equinox has been named a Top Safety Pick. Here are some highlights about the Equinox model’s latest accolade.  

Top Safety Pick Criteria: In order to be named a Top Safety Pick, the vehicle in question is thoroughly tested to ensure it is crashworthy. The Equinox rated well when assessed by the organization’s roof strength, head restraint, and overlap tests.

Crash Prevention: The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox comes standard with crash prevention features intended to mitigate or avoid altogether the effects of a crash with another vehicle. The IIHS tested the Equinox’s crash prevention feature and found that the SUV was able to completely stop a crash when traveling at 12 mph, and was able to slow the vehicle from 25 to 3 mph at a higher-speed test. The Equinox’s pedestrian crash avoidance feature also received high marks, though it did not contribute to the award.

High Beam Assist: For a vehicle to become a Top Safety Pick, it must have at least an “acceptable” ranking for its headlights. The Equinox’s standard high-beam assist feature on its HID projection headlamps helped it meet the criteria.

We commend Chevy for securing this lauded award for the 2020 Equinox. Experience the Top Safety Pick-winning Equinox for yourself when you test-drive one here at Lannan Chevrolet of Woburn. You’re bound to fall in love with this safe, eco-friendly, contemporary family-hauler.
