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
The Honda CR-V 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Equinox or the Honda CR-V, 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 Honda CR-V.

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
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 Honda CR-V.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Equinox is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Equinox has a little more 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.
