It’s one thing to have a roomy crossover vehicle that provides performance and efficiency. It’s quite another to have one that sets the trend for fashion and comfort in vehicle interiors. The 2018 Chevy Equinox checks off both of those boxes, with a fashionable interior that’s comfortable and made with materials that will stand the test of time. “Many fashion trends disappear after a year or two, while the Equinox is designed for the long haul, making the durability of its materials very important,” according to Chevy designer Mara Kapsis. “By following real people and absorbing the little things in life that help or hinder them – such as photos posted of muddy paws, spilled drinks or stains on the seats – we learned more about how we could make the new Equinox easier to live with and enjoy every day.” See the fashionable interior and feel its comfort when you take a test drive at Chapman Chevrolet.

Offers Denim or Leather Choices

The 2018 Chevy Equinox offers your choice of a contemporary black denim or leather seating that both resist staining and marks. The denim is a strong fabric that’s very easy to clean and follows the fashion trends in clothing. “The fabric is very durable, while the color and even the pattern help hide dirt and stains,” Kapsis said. “It’s also very easy to vacuum and clean, which saves the owner’s time and helps keep the interior looking great year after year.” The leather interior is also very easy to clean and is treated to avoid bleed over from other materials. “The Equinox is designed for the way our customers live,” according to Kapsis, “complementing its style with durable, easy-to-clean materials helps ensure it and its owners make a fashion statement every day.”

Equinox Loaded with Technology

Turbo Engines Offer Performance Choices

The smaller engine delivers a phenomenal 32 mpg on the highway, while the larger motor still has great mileage with a rating of 29 mpg on the open road. The new design and responsive handling give Equinox drivers a fun driving experience. “From accelerating to turning corners, the 2018 Equinox drives ‘lighter,’ which correlates with a greater feeling of precision,” Dennis said. “It’s a dynamic, agile driving experience rooted in the solidity of the all-new body structure.”

New Body Design Pays Off

The new body and chassis design, along with the use of lightweight materials, has paid off in several areas for the 2018 Chevy Equinox. Engineers used a combination of high-strength and ultra-high strength steel to create a robust safety cage that surrounds the passengers and helps lessen the chance of injuries in the result of a collision. A stiffer body also helps in handling, and lets the engineers concentrate on improving the quality of the ride. A tighter body also means less noise and vibration, creating a more pleasant ride for the driver and passengers. The use of mixed materials is a philosophy Chevy is using on other vehicles, including the Bolt EV, Malibu and Traverse.

Plenty of Room for Cargo and People

Although the Equinox is classified as a compact SUV, its innovative design leaves plenty of room for people and cargo. An underfloor storage space in the rear is hidden from the eye, providing a secure place to store shopping bags and other items. The new Equinox has all the technology that’s available on other Chevy vehicles, including Teen Driver, Forward Collision Alert and Surround Vision.
