2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV 2RS is sporty crossover on a budget


The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV is coming soon to U.S. dealerships, offering a new alternative to popular electric SUVs like the Tesla Model Y, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and Ford Mustang Mach-E. Recently, I had a chance to check out the new electric SUV in the sporty RS variant, specifically in the 2RS trim. Here’s my take on the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV 2RS:

Design

The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV 2RS features a sporty design and looks like a proper crossover. I like its aggressive front with the full-width DRL, which gives it an intense look. The discreetly placed headlights and textured pattern on the gloss black faux grille give it a touch of sophistication. A black bowtie further highlights the SUV’s sporty demeanor.

Looking from the sides, I think the A-pillar is extremely raked, and along with the flush-fitted door handles, that should lead to reduced drag. The 21-inch alloy wheels, ORVMs, and cant rails carry a black finish. I find the rear a little weird because of the flattish deck forming in the center and the hexagonal concave surface in the lower part of the AutoSense power liftgate. I also think the diamond-shaped trim in the bumper looks gaudy.

Interior

In my opinion, the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV 2RS has the sportiest interior in its segment, one that particularly young customers will appreciate. This is mainly because of the design of the dashboard and the outboard AC vents integrated into it, as well as the chunky housing of these AC vents.

The slim central AC vents and climate control panel and the 11- and 17.7-inch freestanding displays offer high-tech and elegant styling. I like the sleek steering wheel with push-operated buttons and toggle switches as well. The seats also feature a sporty design, and the black color scheme, red accent on the door cards, red stitching in the steering wheel cover, and red piping in the seat covers elevate that feeling.

The 17.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system includes built-in Google apps. According to official videos, this system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Chevrolet equips the 2024 Equinox EV 2RS with a panoramic sunroof with power sunshade, a backup camera, head-up display, and Bose audio system as well. Super Cruise, Driver Drowsiness Warning, LKA with LDW, FCA, and Automatic Parking Assist are among the key advanced driver assistance systems.
