Chevy Equinox Lands on 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens List

2020 Chevrolet Equinox | Garland, TX

Choosing a safe, reliable vehicle for your teen driver can be a real struggle, as you need to sift through countless options to find the one that will keep your child as safe as possible. However, with the release of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens list, you can end your search with the Chevrolet Equinox.

Every year since 2014, the IIHS has evaluated used vehicles and compiled them into a collection of the best models for burgeoning drivers. In order to be listed as one of the top choices for teens, a car needs to achieve good ratings in the moderate overlap front, head restraint, side and roof strength tests. It must also have earned a minimum of four stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to the IIHS, 2016 or newer Chevrolet Equinox models more than fit the bill. In addition to earning the necessary scores, the current model also features the innovative Teen Driver technology. This advanced technology helps promote positive driving behaviors by letting you restrict some features and view an in-vehicle report card that summarizes your child’s driving performance.*

*Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for more important feature limitations and information.
