Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
The Toyota RAV4 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Equinox, 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). 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. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Toyota RAV4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
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 Toyota RAV4.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Equinox is clearly the choice over the Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. 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.
