Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Tucson. 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Equinox or the Hyundai Tucson, 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. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Equinox, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Tucson.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Equinox will do just as well as the Hyundai Tucson, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower 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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Equinox as you will in the Hyundai Tucson.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
