2017 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 Hyundai Tucson Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Hyundai Tucson. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Tucson, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, 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). The Chevrolet Equinox is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Tucson. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. If you go with the Chevrolet Equinox, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Equinox doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Equinox is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Equinox has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Tucson. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Equinox as you will in the Hyundai Tucson.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
