Properly installing a car seat is essential for keeping your young children safe on the go, but it can also be a real hassle. If you’re searching for a vehicle that makes car seat installation easy while improving your peace of mind, look no further than the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox.
Cars.com recently named the Equinox to its annual Car Seat Check Honor Roll. To make this list, a vehicle has to provide an A-rated car seat installation experience. Parents should be able to quickly find the vehicle’s top tether anchors and effortlessly attach a car seat to them.
For 2020, certified technicians put each competing vehicle through a rigorous evaluation process while installing several different types of rear-facing and forward-facing car seats. The Chevrolet Equinox passed with flying colors.
The Equinox has two comfortable rows and has more than enough room to accommodate rear-facing car seats. The tether anchors are labeled well so car seat installation is more convenient. The Equinox is also family-friendly in many other ways. The second row of this compact SUV offers tons of legroom and headroom for passengers of all sizes. Numerous safety systems also come standard to provide additional awareness and peace of mind on the road.
If cargo space is one of your top vehicle-buying priorities, Chevrolet has a wide range of smart options for you. Here’s our guide to the roomiest Chevy models for your luggage, sports gear, DIY materials and more.
The 2021 Suburban is a three-row SUV that boasts a huge amount of cargo space: 144.7 cubic feet when the second and third rows are folded down. Even when all the seats are filled with passengers, you can fit your items in the 41.5 cubic feet of cargo volume in the cargo compartment. The 2021 Tahoe SUV isn’t far behind, offering a maximum of 122.9 cubic feet.
The 2021 Blazer and 2020 Equinox are both two-row SUVs, and they boast nearly equal amounts of cargo space. The Blazer offers 30.5 cubic feet with the seats full and 64.2 cubic feet with the second row folded. Meanwhile, the Equinox comes with 29.9 cubic feet behind the second row and 63.9 cubic feet behind the first row.
The 2020 Bolt EV is a surprisingly roomy option in the Chevrolet car lineup. This all-electric vehicle gives you 16.9 cubic feet of space in the trunk. With the back seats folded flat, that expands to 56.6 cubic feet — more than many SUVs.
