Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Mazda CX-30. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda CX-30, 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Equinox or the Mazda CX-30, it's going to cost you about the same. 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-30.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much wider than the Mazda CX-30, 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 Mazda CX-30.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mazda CX-30.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-30.

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-30. With the Chevrolet Equinox, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mazda CX-30.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-30.
