FEATURES

Is it possible to get increased visibility while using less energy? With the HID Headlights that come standard on the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox4, the answer is yes. On the 2021 Subaru Outback, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights are a pricey add-on.

No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox5, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2021 Subaru Outback, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
