One of the best parts of buying a Chevy Equinox is the packages. The family-friendly SUV comes with more than half a dozen packages that enhance comfort, convenience, technology, safety, and more. The following are the three Chevy Equinox packages we like just that little bit extra.
RS Leather Package
It’s hard not to like a leather interior. Available on the Equinox RS, this package adds perforated Jet Black leather-appointed seating with sporty red accents. To top it off, it also comes with a seven-speaker Bose® premium sound system.
Confidence & Convenience II Package
We love this package because it’s so darned cool. Offered exclusively on the Equinox Premier, it includes Automatic Parking Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and an HD Surround Vision Camera. And yes, Automatic Parking Assist will help you parallel park.
LS Convenience Package
This package is a great addition to the entry-level Equinox for customers on a budget. Its main feature is an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with two-way lumbar support, perfect for supporting your back during your daily commute or over long road trips. It also includes an enhanced multi-color info display as well as tinted rear glass.
In order to make the list, the small SUVs had to receive high ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and high crash test scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The vehicles also had to offer some standard driver-assist technologies.
2021 GMC Terrain
The 2021 GMC Terrain received “Good” ratings in the six IIHS crashworthiness tests and a “Superior” rating for its vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention system. The SUV also earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. In addition to its standard Automatic Forward Emergency Braking, the 2021 Terrain also offers a number of available driver-assist technology that helps drivers stay safe on the road, such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and lane change alert.
2021 Chevrolet Equinox
Similar to the 2021 Terrain, the 2021 Chevy Equinox also received a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA. On top of its “Good” IIHS crashworthiness test ratings, the small SUV also earned the Top Safety Pick rating with its available headlights. U.S. News & World Report writers also highlighted the Equinox’s comfortable interior that features a user-friendly infotainment system.
