2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 Kia Sportage Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Kia Sportage, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Equinox, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Kia Sportage. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Equinox will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Kia Sportage.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Sportage.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox greatly out-muscles the Kia Sportage.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Chevrolet Equinox seats a lot fewer people than the Kia Sportage.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sportage.
