When you're looking for your next family car, daily work commuter, or adventure wagon, one of the most important things to take into consideration is how safe it is. The 2021 Chevy Equinox has safety in spades, and has won both a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS as well as a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA due its large number of active and passive safety features. We've compiled the five top safety features below.

1. Chevy Equinox Can Hit the Brakes For You   

One of the most common accidents on American roadways is the rear-end collision, and they're only becoming more common with the increased distractions causing people to stop short, pull out in front of others, and miss traffic cues. While you should never drive distracted, Chevy's engineers have built some peace-of-mind features into the Equinox that can help you stop regardless.

Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking watches the road ahead to warn you when it detects a potential front-end collision so you can take action. When you're driving, it can let you know if you're following the vehicle ahead too closely as well, which helps reduce the chance of a hard braking situation. When hard braking is needed, though, the Chevy Equinox can automatically provide it, or enhance yours.

Driving through city streets can be fraught with danger for pedestrians and drivers alike. Chevy is here to help with standard Front Pedestrian Braking, which activates at speeds below 50 mph to detect pedestrians in the street ahead of you. The system can warn you of the pedestrian and even provide hard emergency braking to keep everyone safe.   

2. Better Highway Peace of Mind With the Chevy Equinox 

When you're driving on the highway, you face a different set of challenges: long straight roadways can cause highway hypnosis, leading to unintentional lane changes, and when driving at night, switching between high beams and low beams can be tiresome.

Chevy's standard Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning can help keep you in your lane by using brief, gentle steering to alert you to drift. It's smart enough to know when you're intentionally switching lanes, and the available Side Blind Zone Alert can let you know if there's a vehicle in your blind spot before you switch lanes.

Switching between high beams for better visibility and low beams to be considerate of other drivers can be a chore. Enter Chevy Equinox's Intellibeam® auto High Beam Assist, which monitors traffic conditions to automatically turn your high beams on when it can and switch back to low beams when needed.

3. Child’s Safety With the Chevy Equinox 

Driving with children has never been easier than with the 2021 Chevy Equinox. You'll never have to worry about forgetting a little one in the backseat with the standard Rear Seat Reminder, and with the LATCH system, you can keep them safely secured on every drive.

When the little ones grow up, eventually they'll want to get on the road themselves. Keep teens driving safely by enabling Chevy's Teen Driver mode, which limits some features and turns on extra safety systems when equipped. Teen Driver mode also features Buckle-to-Drive which prevents the driver from shifting from Park if the seatbelt isn't fastened, as well as an in-vehicle report card to provide tips and coaching on driving habits.

4. Chevy's Available Extra Eyes on the Road
For even more safety on the road, Chevy offers a number of available features on the 2021 Chevy Equinox near Akron. These include Adaptive Cruise Control for highway driving, Rear Cross Traffic Alert for backing out of parking spaces, and High Definition Surround Vision so you can see everything going on around your Equinox. Plus, a Safety Alert Seat provides a tactile level to warnings, by vibrating the sides of your seat to alert you to road conditions.

5. OnStar® With the 2021 Chevy Equinox 

Sometimes, the worst is inevitable. If you are involved in a crash, facing a crisis or emergency, stranded, or trying to find your stolen car, an OnStar Advisor is ready to help 24/7 in this Chevy SUV. OnStar provides ultimate peace of mind, wherever you happen to go.
