Review 

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox is competitive among compact SUVs with a top-level reliability rating. It also has a long list of features and reasonable fuel efficiency, but its base engine is suitable, and its cabin quality is subpar. The 2021 Equinox is a mainstream player. Other than its major competitors, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, the Chevy Equinox is much larger. It is much bigger than Chevy Trax but still shy of the Blazer mid-size.

The bulk of Equinox strains the turbo-four of 1.5 liters but is ideal for everyday use. Riding and handling are professional but unusual. A refreshment was scheduled for the model year 2021 but was pushed back because of supply and production problems due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, the Equinox soldier will be largely unchanged, but due to the lagging consumer demand, the 2.0-liter engine dropped.

2021 Chevy Equinox Interior

What is the seating capacity?

The five-seat, compact SUV is the Chevrolet Equinox. It impresses with enormous legroom behind the rear, which helps tall adults to sit comfortably there. Passengers with the back seat should have a wide headroom as well unless you choose a sunroof panoramic. The front seats are shaped to maintain relaxation and long drives.

How many Child Car Seats are there?

The equinox rear outboard seat has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors and the rear middle seat anchor upper tether. This LATCH system is the second-highest rating appropriate to its ease of use by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. You might confuse other hardware for the top tether anchors, but the only one is about the hiccup.

Interior Quality

For its interior quality and style, Equinox’s cabins are measured in mixed reviews. There are many hard plastic surfaces and other drab materials, but a pleasant surprise is a soft-touch accent. The cabin is overall tailored to luxury instead of durability.

Cargo Space

The cargo space of Equinox is about average. There are only 30 cubic feet behind the back seats and about 64 cubic feet, and the second row folds down. There is ample space for several suitcases with the back seats upright.
