Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Jeep Renegade. The Jeep Renegade offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Renegade, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Jeep Renegade. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Renegade.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much slimmer than the Jeep Renegade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Jeep Renegade.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Renegade.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Renegade.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Renegade. With the Chevrolet Equinox, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Renegade.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Renegade.
