2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mazda CX-5, 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 Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Equinox, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mazda CX-5.

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 Mazda CX-5. 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 Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Mazda CX-5. 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 Mazda CX-5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mazda CX-5.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mazda CX-5 is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox has a lot less horsepower than the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Mazda CX-5. The Chevrolet Equinox has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
