In terms of cargo capacity, when the rear seats are folded down, you’ll find a respectable 63.9 cu.-ft. of cargo space ― and 29.9 cu.-ft. when they are up.

2020 Chevy Equinox Interior & Exterior Design

Sharp looking with smooth, modern lines, the 2020 Chevy Equinox is easy on the eyes and a joy to drive. Depending on the trim level you choose, keyless open and start and a hands-free gesture liftgate offer added convenience.

Inside, the cabin design is stylish, roomy, and equipped with infotainment that’s easy to reach and use. Active noise cancellation ensures that your ride will be quiet, too. The Equinox comes equipped with 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot capability, a six-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth® technology.
