2021 Chevrolet Equinox Interior Review


Interior: 7.2

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox boasts easy-to-use features and spacious, comfortable seating. Its interior quality is mixed, however, while cargo space is about average for the class.

  • "Made from durable materials and nicely styled, the Equinox's cabin should draw broad appeal." -- Car and Driver
  • "In terms of style, the Chevy plays it pretty safe, and that's not a bad thing. Add in the impressive performance and there's a lot to like about it. Unfortunately, these positives are tempered by the disappointing interior materials." -- Edmunds (2020)
  • "When we slowed down and drove like a regular Equinox buyer, we had time to enjoy the redesigned cabin. Like the exterior design, the inside is plucked from other Chevrolet models. This isn't a bad thing, as it does away with the rough plastic-fantastic Equinox interior of yore. Plastic is still used liberally, but there's a clear move toward softer touch and lower impact materials." -- Automobile Magazine (2018)

Cargo Space

The Equinox has 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats and 63.9 cubic feet with the second row folded down. Those values are about average for a compact SUV. A power liftgate and hands-free liftgate access are optional.

  • "Some rivals offer more space behind the rear seats, but we still managed to fit eight of our carry-on suitcases back there." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Equinox has good cargo capacity. … With the rear seats folded you get 63.9 cubic feet of storage. That compares to 75.8 in the Honda CR-V or 73.5 in the Volkswagen Tiguan." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Certainly, the Chevrolet Equinox does the SUV thing well. … Cargo space is definitely better than what you'll find in a comparably priced sedan or hatchback." -- Edmunds (2020)


The Chevrolet Equinox seats five people. Both rows of seats provide ample comfort and support for long trips. The second row in particular impresses with its legroom and headroom.

Standard features include cloth upholstery and four-way manually adjustable front seats. Options include leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a heated steering wheel, and driver's seat memory settings.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. There's also a tether anchor for the middle seats. The lower anchors are easy to find and access, but the tether anchors can be confused for other hardware.

  • "The spacious interior should carry both front- and rear-seat passengers in reasonable comfort." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Chevrolet Equinox has a useful and roomy 5-passenger cabin. The front seats are supportive and comfortable enough for long trips. … The 2nd-row bench has a recline feature and legroom is generous." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The front seats are well-shaped for long hours on the road, though the lumbar adjustment is set a bit too low. The rear seats offer good thigh support. … The interior is quite roomy, but only if you skip the optional panoramic sunroof. Selecting it reduces rear headroom severely." -- Edmunds (2020)

Interior Features

The Chevrolet Equinox comes standard with a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, four USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, voice recognition, a six-speaker stereo, and proximity keyless entry.

The touch screen responds quickly to inputs, and its menu layout is simple. Other controls around the dashboard are clearly marked and ergonomic.

Optional infotainment features include an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, two additional USB ports, wireless device charging, satellite radio, HD Radio, a seven-speaker Bose premium stereo, and a rear-seat entertainment system. Other available amenities include remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a universal garage door opener, a panoramic roof, a household-style power outlet, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a color driver-information display.

Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, a following distance indicator, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high-beam headlights, a rearview camera, the Teen Driver function, and a rear-seat reminder. Optional features include rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, and a safety alert seat.

  • "A 7- or 8-inch touchscreen display sits in the center of the dash. Controls for common functions like fan speed, temperature, and audio are simple to use." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The [infotainment] system continues to impress with its ease of use and quick responses. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are standard, as are Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB connectivity, and an auxiliary input jack. Standard onboard Wi-Fi makes the Equinox one of the best-connected crossovers." -- Car and Driver
  • "We like how intuitive the … infotainment system is, and the optional Bose audio is surprisingly powerful with excellent clarity. The voice command system is easy to use, but it's not as good as your smartphone assistant, which uses more natural speech detection." -- Edmunds (2020)
