Chicago Chevy Equinox proves practical for suburban families

Choosing a car that provides the most important features a typical suburban family needs can prove a tedious process. Parents have to take into account a number of factors, like roominess, typical local driving conditions, storage, accessibility, comfort, affordability, and – most importantly – safety.

According to recent reviews, visiting a local Chicago Chevy Equinox dealer could be the first step towards weighing these factors and providing the safest and most functional driving experience for your family.

Potential family car shoppers may have evaluated past Chevy Equinox models and found the car not quite adequate for a small-to-medium size family. In truth, the 2010 Equinox offers even better features than its 2005-09 counterparts, especially when it comes to the attributes that are most important to providing families with a comfortable, safe drive. The new Equinox is available in LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ trim levels.

While competent vehicles, previous models were equipped with a standard 3.4-liter V6 that generated 185 hp and 210 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the 2010 Equinox – available with a 3.0-liter V6 that shells out 264 hp and 222 lb-ft of torque – earlier models don’t compare. All 2010 models come with a six-speed automatic transition and front-wheel drive, with optional all-wheel drive. Talk with your Chicago Chevy Equinox representative about the engine options that are best for you and your family.

As a “plus-sized” small crossover SUV that can carry up to five passengers, the Chevy Equinox offers the fashion and functionality of a more traditional SUV but adds smoother driving dynamics and a better fuel economy. Storage space – a key component for toys, laptops, DVD players, and anything else you bring to keep the kids busy – is ample. The center console bin is deep, providing enough storage space for a 15-inch laptop. The Equinox’s cargo area allows for 31.4 cubic feet of storage. An adjustable rear cargo shelf even further enhances storage abilities.

When visiting your local Chicago suburban Chevrolet, potential buyers who test-drive the Equinox should note the vehicle’s smooth, quiet ride – perfect for keeping the kids content and in their seats. An improved and more robust body structure, triple-sealed doors, laminated acoustical glass and a drag coefficient reduced from 0.42 to 0.36 helps silence the blustery wind noises inside the vehicle.

For the ultimate accessibility, the new Chevy Equinox features rocker panels integrated into the doors, so kids can get in and out of the vehicle easily. Multiflex rear seat capability allows the seats to move forwards or backwards nearly eight inches, giving children plenty of wiggle room.

As parents, we all know that one of the most crucial evaluations for a family car is safety features. The Chevy Equinox comes with six standard airbags: dual frontal airbags, head curtain side airbags, pelvic/thorax seat-mounted side airbags. Breaks are standard four-wheel disc with StabiliTrack electronic stability control and traction control.

Start your search for your next family vehicle at your local Chicago suburban Chevrolet. The new features of this strong crossover SUV might even make believers out of Chicago Chevy Traverse patrons looking for a smoother, quieter drive.
