2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Mazda CX-5, 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 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. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Mazda CX-5 have similar Destination Charges.

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 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 greatly out-muscles 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.

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