One of the most competitive segments in the automotive industry is the midsize crossover segment, so standing out from the crowd is pivotal. The Chevrolet Equinox stands out not only with its stellar design and features, but also with its great crash test ratings.
The Equinox is one of only two 2014 midsize crossovers to achieve the top “Good” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the small overlap frontal crash test. The other vehicle is its sibling the GMC Terrain.
This is one of the newest tests added by the IIHS and simulates a vehicle crashing into a narrow object (like a tree or utility pole) with the front corner of the car—one of the most common types of accidents.
In this test, the Equinox was able to maintain its structure so that intrusion into the driver’s space was low. The Equinox also received Good ratings in all other tests, which is more than enough to give it the Top Safety Pick+ recognition.
