Feature Face-Off: A Thorough Comparison Of The 2023 Chevrolet Equinox LS & RS Trims

The Chevy Equinox is a versatile compact SUV that offers everything from sporty styling to a spacious interior, a surprisingly crisp chassis, and lots of desirable standard features. The Equinox also provides a turbocharged engine and a myriad of optional features for shoppers looking to notch things up.

We’ve curated this article to help you choose between two popular options, the LS and RS trims, when leasing a 2023 Chevrolet Equinox.

The Equinox LS and RS

Like the rest of the lineup, the Equinox LS and RS are motivated by the same engine, a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 175 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with a well-calibrated six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available on both trims. With the default front-wheel drive, both models get an EPA estimate of 26 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. Upgrading to all-wheel drive drops the estimates to 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.


The Equinox comes in four trim levels, and the LS is its base trim. While shoppers may not expect to see the crossover’s most fascinating features on display, the LS still offers some decent standard features, such as;

  • 6-speaker audio system
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • 17-inch aluminum wheels
  • Black lower window trim
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Front bucket seats
  • Keyless open
  • Keyless start
  • 0-ich infotainment system with Wireless Apple CarPlay/Wireless Android Auto capability for compatible phones
  • 3-spoke deluxe steering wheel
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • 5-inch diagonal monochromatic driver display
  • Single-zone manual climate control
  • Wi-Fi hotspot capable
  • Premium cloth-trimmed seats

Shoppers looking to get enhanced features in on the base model can check out the optional LS convenience package, which includes features like 8-way power driver seat, 2-way power driver lumbar, deep-tinted rear glass, 4.2-inch diagonal multi-color driver information center, and more.


The RS is the Equinox’s third trim and a popular choice for many shoppers as it offers virtually all the features of the top-tier trim while being less expensive. It also has all the features from the lower LS and LT trims, including LED daytime running lamps, deep-tinted rear glass, etc. Standard features on the Equinox RS are;

  • 19-inch aluminum wheels
  • Remote Start
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Heated driver and front passenger seats
  • Power programmable liftgate
  • Front and Rear Park Assist
  • Front and rear black bowtie emblems
  • Heated driver and front passenger seats
  • Wrapped steering wheel
  • LED tail lamps
  • Jet Black perforated leather-appointed seating
  • Seven-speaker Bose premium sound system
  • Driver seatback map pocket

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
