Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Chevrolet Equinox, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, 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 Hyundai Tucson. 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 Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is a little narrower than the Hyundai Tucson, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

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 Hyundai Tucson.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Tucson. The Chevrolet Equinox has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Tucson.
