WASHINGTON The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox crossover earned a four-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Five stars is the highest rating.

The 2014 Equinox received four stars in front and rollover crash tests and five stars in the side impact test.

The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2014 Equinox.

The 2014 Equinox received "good" ratings in all Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, including the moderate overlap front crash test. The forces in that test are similar to those that would result from a frontal offset crash between two vehicles of the same weight, each going just under 40 mph.

Competitors to the Equinox include the 2014 Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Kia Sportage and Toyota RAV4.
