IIHS Hails Chevrolet Equinox as Safe for Teen Drivers

Safety comes first when you’re looking for a reliable ride for your teen driver, and the Chevrolet Equinox is one of the safest options around. This fact has been confirmed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which named the 2016 and newer Equinox to its list of the best choice for teen drivers.

IIHS’ list includes vehicles that earned top scores in its crashworthiness tests as well as from the National Highway Traffic Administration. Each vehicle also earned high marks from Consumer Reports for reliability, helping ensure your confidence when you put your kids behind the wheel.

The Chevrolet Equinox offers ample standard safety features and is among the first vehicles in the Chevy lineup to offer Teen Driver Technology. With Teen Driver, you can set limitations for your child whenever they take the wheel like max speed and auto volume. You can even set it to where the audio won’t play until everyone buckles their seatbelts.

But the Chevrolet Equinox isn’t just a safe choice for teen drivers — it’s a stylish, smart, and fun-to-drive SUV that’s great for a learning driver.
