Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Equinox than the Honda CR-V. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Honda CR-V, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda CR-V. 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 Honda CR-V have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda CR-V.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Equinox will do just as well as the Honda CR-V, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Honda CR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Honda CR-V. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Honda CR-V, 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 Honda CR-V.
