2020 Chevrolet Equinox SUV Infotainment and Interior Features
The entry-level crossover segment is the most price-conscious class in the United States and all manufacturer is striving hard to churn good sales estimates. The Equinox is the Chevy’s answer to hot-selling vehicles like the Honda CR-V and Toyota Rav4. With the 2020 Equinox, Chevrolet gives shoppers an option among two gas engines, a high-mpg turbodiesel engine, front- or all-wheel drive, and four trim levels. Resembling the character of a younger and smaller sibling to the midsize Chevy Traverse, the new Equinox keeps a fresh appearance of its own.
The front seats are very spacious and provide comfort all day long with the ample amount of headroom for every individual. Both rows of seats offer good head- and legroom, though the optional sunroof noticeably minimizes headroom. You will see hard plastic on most of the places which don’t match up to the price tag. Equinox has redesigned last year and the smaller footprint now makes up for nimbler handling in tight parking spots.
Seating and Comfort
The attractive exterior of Equinox features aerodynamic sculpting and signature LED daytime running lamps. Enter into the cabin and there’s an abundance of space for you, your passengers and your belongings. One should also note that the dual-cockpit design highlights an integrated centre stack, so everything is right within range. You get a good range of seat adjustment and the telescopic steering helps average size individuals to find the right spot. The rear -seat also reclines but the angle is too steep and you begin to slip on the extreme adjustment.
The Equinox is very low to the ground rather being a crossover and passenger’s can get inside the vehicle with least effort. The doors are small enough to open wide in tight parking spaces. As it is smaller in size the thick A-pillars in the front hinder outward visibility. Neither Equinox feels upscale from the inside, though elements are satisfactory for the prices Chevy charges. For the safety of your little ones, there is complete Latch car-seat systems in the second row's outboard seats and a top tether anchor for the middle seat.
Cargo and Luggage Utility
The Chevy Equinox provides 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind its second row and 63.5 cubic feet with the seats folded. If you’ve got your hands full, the available hands-free gesture liftgate opens with just the gentle kicking motion of your foot. What’s more, a programmable memory height can be set for easy reach or to accommodate areas with low ceilings.
Chevy has done an outstanding job in with in-cabin storage, there are plenty of water bottle pocketers. The trays for cellphones are particularly helpful with rubberized coverings to keep objects in place.
Infotainment and Interior features
Chevy’s intuitive MyLink infotainment system atop the 7.0-inch infotainment screen in the Equinox. The Mylink system is natural to use but takes time master. The Chevy has plenty of highlights that are standard throughout the lineup, and the inclusion of six USB ports ensures all devices will be charged. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, as are Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB connectivity, and an auxiliary input jack.
The crisp graphics make it easy for you to glance in the screen and the optional Bose sound has some solid power and delivers adequate sound. There are also physical buttons for some functions, in addition to the touch screen. However, the system isn't perfect some settings require several steps to adjust which can be frustrating. The climate control seems like it has been taken from a bigger SUV and the fan speed is insane, the dual-zone climate is able to maintain a calm environment even in the scorching heat outside. At last voice commands are natural and the Apple car play can be accessed through it but it is dependent on an internet connection.
