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 2023 Chevrolet Equinox has a score of 82, implying a 0.04% chance of driver death (3.6% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2023 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 2023 Chevrolet Equinox is 15% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2023 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 2023 Chevrolet Equinox which we recommend include Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Monitoring.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Chevrolet Equinox. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
