Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Honda HR-V. The Chevrolet Equinox will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda HR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Honda HR-V, 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 Honda HR-V.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much wider than the Honda HR-V, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Honda HR-V.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has the same turning radius as the Honda HR-V, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little more horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

Powertrain
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 Honda HR-V.

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