SUVs are one of the most sought-after vehicles in the Middle East as they offer large interior space along with a roomy cargo-carrying capacity as well as a fuel-efficient drive. However, due to their large dimensions, SUVs usually have to compromise on aerodynamics. Nevertheless, the engineering team at Chevrolet decided to work on the shape of the new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and came up with a phenomenal design which offers a perfect blend of style, function, and efficiency. The design team had to ensure that the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox could be parked and maneuvered easily as well as offer ample interior space. Thus, the overall length of the SUV was reduced by 119 millimeters. Moreover, it was tested for 500 hours in a full-scale wind tunnel. The new design rendered a 10 percent reduction in the wind resistance compared to the previous model. Also, the 2018 Equinox has the capability to alter its aerodynamics depending on the situation. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox also features a number of latest safety amenities including Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collison Alert with following Distance Indicator and more. The SUV is now on sale in the Middle East with a starting price of about AED 80,900.
