The Equinox, part of Chevrolet's lineup since 2005, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. Chevrolet offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox has a score of 80, implying a 0.042% chance of driver death (3.8% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.042% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.8004%, meaning the average driver has a 0.042% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.8004% chance of being injured.
