5 Top Safety Features of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

As a parent I know safety is important to you. Here are the top safety features of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

Chevrolet loaned me a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox for the purpose of this post.

Earlier this summer I had the opportunity to drive the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox during a road trip with my children to San Antonio for a quick trip to Sea World. There are some advanced safety features of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox that not only adds peace of mind when driving, but provides drivers with a different kind of driving experience.

Safety features are important. Here are what I think are the top safety features of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

5 Top Safety Features of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning: If you unintentionally drift from your lane, Lane Keep Assist provides gentle steering wheel turns and alerts to help you get your vehicle back in place if you don’t take action. When the car reaches a lane marking, the car will move itself away from the marker, while also giving an audible alert to let you know you are nearing a lane marker.

360 Surround Vision Camera: Surround Vision is a technology that provides a literal look at the car’s perimeter. This system uses strategically located cameras on all sides of the vehicle to provide a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the vehicle, giving drivers the ability to quickly view the surrounding area at a glance. This is a great way to check to see if there are any unseen obstacles in the way before driving off.

Rear Seat Reminder: This safety feature alerts drivers with an audible ding and message on the dash screen to remind them to check the backseat when exiting the vehicle. This technology is incredibly important so that drivers don’t unintentionally leave anything in the backseat.

Teen Driver is a leading edge, password-protected, “digital report card” for parents that displays a rundown of the teen’s driving habits on the the vehicle’s screen. It records fastest speed, how many times safety features are activated and mutes the music if seatbelts are unbuckled. Parents can then use the information in the “report card” as a teaching tool to continue to help their teens drive safely.

Family Link: This technology allows parents to view the car’s location on a map or receive email or text alerts with the car’s location at a specific time. It even allows parents to set a location or radius a vehicle should always be in and sends alerts if the boundary is violated.

These safety features are just a small example of the features offered on the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. Other features such as the new forward collision alert with follow distance indicator, low-speed forward automatic braking, and rear cross traffic alert offer even more ways to stay safe on the road.

Although not a safety feature, I thought the fuel economy was worth mentioning. During our road trip we were getting just over 28 miles per gallon. Compared to my current vehicle, that’s a huge improvement.

    No doubt Chevrolet is a good brand. They always consider the safety of customers. This model also looks good.

    I am all about safety features in my vehicles. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox sounds super safe for families like mine!

    I’d definitely like the 360 camera. I’ve only ever had that in vehicles I’ve rented for travel. That Teen Driver report card technology is really cool too!

    I just recently bought a new GMC Acadia, the Chevy version of the Traverse so basically the same thing just bigger. My old vehicle was a 2004 Chevy Tahoe (so, very old. Ancient.). I cannot believe the safety features! That lane assist is CRAZY. I’m excited for the teen driver bit too because my daughter gets her permit in a couple months (Yikes!)

    Fantastic features! I think we found the right car to get our son. We’re making a purchase in January and this might just be the right vehicle. I love all the safety features and the peace of mind it will give me, as a parent is priceless.

    Someone has an equinox at my job. My friend and I were eyeballing it! It really has a nice body to it. I like some of these features like the 360 Surround Vision Camera. I’m short, so seeing everything is a big plus for me! I love the family link since I have two teens coming up to get their license!
