2017 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Honda CR-V, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Honda CR-V, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda CR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Equinox will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Honda CR-V. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Equinox, which is slightly longer than the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Equinox doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda CR-V.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a larger turning radius than the Honda CR-V, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Equinox will do just as well as the Honda CR-V, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Honda CR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Honda CR-V. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Honda CR-V, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-V.
