If you’re looking for a new ride to take through the streets of Lewistown, State College, and Bellefonte, a crossover might be your best bet. They have plenty of interior space, yet they’re remarkably easier to drive than their full-size counterparts. You just have to make sure you’re getting a crossover with all the capacity you need.
In terms of sheer space inside, the 2018 Chevy Equinox is among the best. Its sleek design and reliable performance is just the beginning of everything this advanced crossover can offer. Learn all about the 2018 Chevy Equinox capacity, and discover whether or not it has enough for your needs in our comprehensive review.
Inside the Equinox, you’ll find plenty of room for passengers and cargo alike. When you’re behind the wheel, you’ll have plenty of room to relax, thanks to the available 40 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom. Your rear passengers will be similarly comfortable with 38.5 inches of headroom and 39.7 inches of legroom.
There’s also generous shoulder room inside no matter which row you’re sitting in. Front passengers can enjoy 57.2 inches of shoulder room while rear passengers get 55.5 inches of shoulder room. The total 103.2 cubic feet of passenger volume is more than enough for five adults to sit inside comfortably.
If you’re more interested in carrying cargo than people, the Equinox can provide in that regard as well. Fold the rear seats down, and you’ll have access to a maximum 63.5 cubic feet of storage space. Even if you have to keep the rear seats up, you’ll still be able to enjoy an impressive 29.9 cubic feet of space behind the second row.
Fortunately, the Equinox makes it easy to customize your cargo and passenger capacity as you see fit, allowing you to mix and match. The second row has a 60/40 split fold, so you can make a bit more room for cargo while still having enough seats for a rear passenger or two to ride along with you.
People don’t generally think of towing capacity when they look at crossovers, but the Equinox was built to impress. Chevy has developed a reputation for producing capable vehicles, and the Equinox is no exception. When equipped with the 2.0-liter turbo powered engine, you get to enjoy a maximum 3,500-pound towing capacity, thanks to its 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
Don’t hesitate to bring that extra trailer with you on your next adventure, because the Equinox’s tow/haul mode makes it easy. All you have to do is press the button, and your transmission will automatically configure itself to run better with the added haul.
