The Equinox, a mainstay of Chevrolet's lineup since 2005, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it handles mud, snow, and sand with ease. Chevrolet offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is average compared to all vehicles.

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 2022 Chevrolet Equinox has a score of 82, implying a 0.04% chance of driver death (3.6% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0399% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.5513%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0399% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.5513% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is 15% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is 2% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Chevrolet's Chevy Safety Assist greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Optional safety features on the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox which we recommend include Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Monitoring.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

But it is safer than many comparable models.
