Although the current Equinox model has been quite fresh and we have recently seen its last update, our team has got the information that the Chevrolet has been on its way with the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox which will soon hit the market.
The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is going to hit the showrooms as a mid-size four-door crossover. As we have already mentioned, the current model has already got some serious redesign for the year 2018, so you shouldn’t expect any revolutionary changes in terms of exterior now. Instead, the 2019 Equinox will continue to ride on the same platform and keep most of its well-known styling features. However, the new model is expected have a lighter body, which will only improve its acceleration, efficiency and overall performance. Besides the lightweight body, it has been said that the new Equinox will get smaller dimensions, actually a wheelbase. But you should not be worried, this won’t affect the space inside its cabin. When it comes to its appearance, this crossover will definitely be more attractive than its predecessor. You will notice lots of refreshed features, chrome details and sharper lines.
As we have already mentioned, the smaller dimensions of the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox will not spoil the fun when it comes to space inside its cabin. The interior of this crossover will perfectly accommodate up to five adult passengers and provide a real comfort. The carmaker will use some high-quality fabric to cover the seats and it will also tend to upgrade the high-tech section. This model will come with a standard 6.1-inch touch-screen display, but you can also choose an optional 8.0-inch display with the latest On Star infotainment system and features such as navigation, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple Car Play, Android Auto and Bluetooth. Some of the advanced safety systems and driver assist features that will provided include a rearview camera, forward-collision warning, blind-spot warning, rear park assist, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-departure warning.
