Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Nissan Rogue Sport 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Nissan Rogue Sport, 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 Nissan Rogue Sport. 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 Nissan Rogue Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Nissan Rogue Sport. 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 Nissan Rogue Sport.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

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 Nissan Rogue Sport.

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

Warranty
