There are many good reasons that compact SUVs are so popular with families and even commuters. For one, they have ample passenger and cargo space while also being maneuverable. Second, a good compact SUV is loaded with comfort, convenience, and safety features. The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox is a perfect example of such a vehicle.

Drivers in Cottonwood and Camp Verde who choose the Equinox will find that it has great space for up to five passengers. All of the seats are supportive and ready for longer journeys. Thanks to the positioning of the driver's seat and body design of the Equinox, there is excellent forward visibility. You will also find plenty of room for your belongings, with 29.9 cubic feet behind the backseat and 63.9 cubic feet when the backseat is folded down.

Powering your journeys around Prescott Valley in the Equinox will be one of two engines. First up is a turbo 1.5L four-cylinder that can make 170-horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. Going with this engine will mean getting a six-speed automatic transmission. Your other option is a turbo 2.0L four-cylinder that generates 252-horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. These models have a nine-speed automatic transmission.

One of the main reasons the team here at Larry Green Chevrolet feels that the Equinox is the ideal family vehicle for Flagstaff and Phoenix drivers are the safety features. Every trim level has driver aids that can help you feel more confident while driving, including forward collision warning, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, and a rearview camera. You will also find lane departure warning and mitigation across the line. Depending on the model you choose, you can also have driver aids such as adaptive cruise control, a safety alert seat, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

No family will be happy in a vehicle that does not have today's latest tech. Luckily, the Equinox has everything you need on your drive around Sedona. Standard features are plentiful and include Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 7-inch touchscreen, and a WiFi hotspot. You also will find a minimum of two USB ports.
