Chevrolet Equinox : Stylish Beast with a Sense of Comfort

 

Chevrolet is all set to enter the market with its beast that already has a market standing in other regions. An SUV with engine options of 1.5 and 2 liter, where the 2.0-liter engine seems quicker than its closest rivals. We had it for a weekend and drove it around the smooth roads of Dubai. Introduced to the region for the first time and that is why it is an all-new model with class-leading offerings. The best part about this car is that it offers a better 2.0-liter engine and a whole new set of technologies that are better than the rivals. However, it lacks the storage space as compared to the competitors. Offering a better headroom and latest infotainment and safety technology.

 

We had the Premier grade, that is the highest end of the car, and we definitely weren’t disappointed by the car.

 

Grade : Premier

Engine

SUV lovers are looking for a powerful beast with a soft comfortable interior, and Chevrolet has taken a good care of that with the new Equinox.

 

 

The 2.0L, 4 Cylinder Turbo Engine, SIDI is the ultimate beauty of this car providing the smooth edge that every driver deserves. A 9-speed Automatic Transmission that gives is another reason to appreciate the performance of this car.

 

Also, another great function is of engine Control Stop/Start System where the acceleration comes to a halt when the brake is pressed and starts back again, quite cool, isn’t it?

 

 

Interior

Equinox is very tech-savvy and user-friendly, all the toggles and switches can be easily handled and acquainted sans much trouble.  The dashboard is sleek and stylish overall with Chevrolet Mylink™ Audio System With 8-inch Diagonal Color Touch Screen.

 

 

A very practical car that has a good seating comfort and particularly a roomy back seat, it is quite spacious as it has the carry the cargo volume up to 1,798 cubic-feet.

 

 

A panoramic sunroof definitely provides a soothing comfort. If you are in a party mood then you can boost up your BOSE® Premium 7-Speaker System With Active Noise Cancellation #swag.

 

 

Exterior

An eye-candy to lure at the car has great aesthetics that can’t be praised enough. Amazing LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that are another modern feature to make the car look edgy. Also, LED Headlamps With Intellibeam technology for better lights at night time can’t be missed to mention.

 

 

Massive 19-inch aluminum wheel give a strong feel to the car that all the roadies would admire.

 

 

Safety

Safety is an important factor while choosing a car, in today’s world all sorts of advancements have been done to make a car crash safe. Features like sensor indicator Lane Keep Assist and Sensor Indicator Side Obstacle Detection Enhanced help the driver stay in lane and keep an eye on the obstacles coming from the side.

 

Sensor Indicator Forward Collision Alert is for preventing any sort of collision possibilities ahead. Rear Vision Camera is great for parking so that you park right hassle free.

 

 

Convenience & Comfort

Comfort and convenience are another two factors SUV’s are good for people with big families as they are practical and spacious. Advanced technology features add to the benefits. A Hands-free power tailgate is of great help when your hands are full with luggage or shopping bags you can just do a foot movement under the trunk to open the gate.

Verdict
