Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Honda HR-V than the Chevrolet Equinox. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda HR-V and the Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda HR-V, 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 Honda HR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Equinox. 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 Honda HR-V and the Chevrolet Equinox have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda HR-V is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Equinox, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Honda HR-V, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Equinox.

Drivetrain
The Honda HR-V has much lower torque than the Chevrolet Equinox, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda HR-V and the Chevrolet Equinox. The Honda HR-V has less cargo space than the Chevrolet Equinox, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Honda HR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Equinox.
