Volvo and Chevrolet are two renowned names in the automobile industry. These brands offer some of the finest vehicles, and two of them include the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and the 2020 Volvo XC60. Both have a long list of features to offer, but most car buyers choose XC60 over Equinox.

Design & Style

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox can seat five people. The front seats are spacious and offers drivers with great visibility. The rear seats have confined space and the sunroof cuts into the headroom of passengers who are tall. This Chevrolet features a stylish interior, but there are too many hard surfaces and low-drab materials inside, which spoils the overall appeal.

From an interior perspective, the 2020 Volvo XC60 has kept things elegant and simple, as there are plenty of top-notch materials and soft touch surfaces. Both rows of seats are roomy and extremely comfortable, and there are plenty of standard features. The XC60 seats come standard with power-adjustable front seats and the synthetic leather upholstery.

Technology & Safety

Standard technology features in the Equinox include the Infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth and USB ports. The infotainment system has a user-friendly interface, and there are physical buttons to control some functions. The display is almost washed out due to sun's glare, and some settings require several steps. Standard safety features include a rear seat reminder, Chevy's Teen driver system and forward collision warning.

The 2020 Volvo XC60 comes equipped with Sensus infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, satellite radio and a 9-inch touch screen. The infotainment system works well, and is highly responsive to inputs. The simple menu layout makes it easy to understand the system. Some of the standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, collision mitigation, driver drowsiness monitoring, oncoming lane mitigation and run-off road mitigation. The optional features include a surround-view parking camera system, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control and rear collision warning.


With the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox, there are two engine options, including the base 170-HP turbo-four engine. It feels less stronger and provides poor acceleration, compared to other rivals. It feels underpowered in most driving situations.

On the other hand, the XC60 has got to offer four options, with the base model featuring a 250-HP turbo four engine, while you can upgrade to 316-HP turbo four cylinder. For more power, one can choose the 400-HP plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 XC60 is a preferred choice among most car buyers. It outclassed other rivals in terms of infotainment technology, performance, design and safety.
