When shopping for a new family SUV, safety is typically a top priority. If you want a new vehicle that offers excellent safety technologies along with other family-friendly features, the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox is an ideal option. The Equinox recently earned a spot on U.S. News & World Report’s list of The 14 Safest SUVs for 2020.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration previously gave the 2020 Equinox a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also named the SUV a 2019 Top Safety Pick. As a result of these high ratings and the SUV’s numerous protective technologies, U.S. News & World Report placed the Equinox on the list of The 14 Safest SUVs for 2020.
For the 2020 model year, the Equinox comes standard with a variety of advanced safety tools, including the Rear Vision Camera, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking and Forward Collision Alert.
Another useful safety feature for parents is Teen Driver. With this system, you can customize the SUV’s settings and limit specific features while your teen is driving.* You can also view a report card, which details your teen’s driving habits.*

* Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for more important feature limitations and information.
As a new school year is underway, don’t forget about one of the most important school supplies of all: the perfect car for going back to college. A car for going to school should be safe, versatile, and fun. Luckily, Chevrolet has you covered. In fact, three of the best cars for going back to school are the Chevrolet Cruze, Trax, and Equinox. And while none of them will ensure you ace your first exam, they will make it easier than ever to get around campus and visit home on the weekends.
Equipped with a standard turbo engine, impressive next-generation connectivity features like available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and fuel economy averaging 52 mpg on the highway, the new Chevrolet Cruze sedan or hatchback are the perfect back to school choices.* Best of all, the Cruze has a stylish yet smart design to make it a blast to drive without sacrificing safety.
For superior flexibility without giving up agile handling and maneuverability, the new Chevrolet Trax is hard to beat. Packed with an available suite of advanced safety technologies, standard smartphone integration, and enough interior flexibility to accommodate any lifestyle, this small SUV is a great compliment to even the busiest life on campus.
Boasting a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA, a “Most Dependable” award from J.D. Power, and up to 63.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, the Chevrolet Equinox compact SUV is an excellent choice for students who never want their vehicle to get in the way of living life to the fullest.

Many families love to bring their pets on road trips, and there are some vehicles that do this better than others. For example, the Chevrolet Equinox, Subaru Crosstrek, and Honda Fit each offer what you need to keep your pet comfortable on the road.
According to The Doggington Post, one of the top vehicles for carrying your dog is the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. The Equinox comes with up to 68 cubic feet of cargo space, which makes it great for big dogs. A range of hooks and safety straps help you to secure your pet. There are also easy-to-clean surfaces, and custom pet barriers are simple to find and install.
The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is incredibly pet friendly. This crossover comes with all-wheel drive to make off-roading fun, and it’s easy to take your pets off the beaten path in the Crosstrek. The rear seats fold down to provide plenty of space, and available accessories like seat covers help keep your ride clean.
The Honda Fit is also a great choice for those who want a pet- and eco-friendly vehicle. There’s not quite as much space in the Fit as you’ll find in the Equinox, but the Fit does come with other great features like fold-down seats and exceptional safety. You don’t have to drive a big SUV to travel with your pets.
