2017 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Toyota RAV4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Equinox and the Toyota RAV4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little more horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Toyota RAV4. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4.
