Are you interested in the new Chevy Equinox but are wondering what others think of it before you finalize your decision? If the latest Chevy Equinox reviews are any indication, the 2021 Equinox is the versatile small SUV your Cary-area family has been searching for! Check out some highlights of Chevrolet Equinox reviews from Car and Driver, Kelley Blue Book, and other sources with Hendrick Chevrolet Cary down below.

Chevrolet Equinox Reviews – Performance Highlights

One of the first things you’ll notice when you hit the Apex roads in a 2021 Equinox is its quick performance and easy handling, and the experts at Car and Driver concur: “Agreeable and easy to drive, the Equinox handles competently, and its steering is accurate and direct.”

U.S. News & World Report also weighed in, touching on the 2.0L Equinox engine in particular: “…the horsepower rating from the larger engine is one of the highest in the class, bested only by a couple of Jeep models.”

Chevrolet Equinox Reviews – Safety Highlights

If you’re shopping for a family vehicle, safety will be at the forefront of your mind. In 2020 the Equinox was an IIHS Top Safety Pick, and the 2021 Equinox fares just as well, earning the highest possible IIHS rating of “Good” across all Crashworthiness tests. It also ranked “Superior” for front crash prevention in a vehicle-to-vehicle crash.

Newly standard on every 2021 Equinox is the Chevy Safety Assist suite, which equips it with driver-assistive technology to inspire confidence on Raleigh highways. Kelley Blue Book touched on this update, saying: “Last year the Chevy Equinox finally caught up to the competition with its suite of standard active-safety features. Now included are automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist, plus IntelliBeam automatic headlights.”

Chevrolet Equinox Reviews – Entertainment Highlights

Safety will always come first, but a close second on many shoppers’ list of priorities is entertainment options. Rest assured, the 2021 Equinox has plenty! Here’s what U.S. News & World Report had to say about the entry-level features: “The base model is a good choice, especially if you’re on a tighter budget. It comes standard with a well-equipped infotainment system and several active safety features.”

Further supporting this opinion, Car and Driver also like the Equinox entertainment options: “A 7.0-inch touchscreen (or optional 8.0-inch screen) displays Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment interface atop the Equinox’s dash; the system continues to impress with its ease of use and quick responses. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are standard, as are Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB connectivity, and an auxiliary input jack. Standard onboard Wi-Fi makes the Equinox one of the best-connected crossovers.”
