2018 Chevy Equinox Safety Features
The new Chevy Equinox features plenty of new and returning safety features. Advantages like lane change, side blind zone and rear cross traffic alerts were available on the 2017 Chevy Equinox, while many other features are new. Some of the most interesting options include:
Teen Driver Technology
With Teen Driver technology, parents won’t have to worry as much about their learning driver. This system can put limits on top speed and sound system volume, as well as ensure that other safety features stay activated.
New Surround Vision
The Surround Vision system available on the 2018 Chevy Equinox provides a 360-degree overhead view around the vehicle thanks to strategically placed cameras. It can greatly help in parking, backing up, and trailering.
Rear Seat Reminder
First announced on the 2017 GMC Acadia, the rear seat reminder on the 2018 Equinox will help drivers remember to check the back seat so that precious cargo (whether that be children or groceries) will not be forgotten.
Other available safety features that will be making their first appearance on the 2018 Chevy Equinox include the Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.
