Fuel Economy

The 2014 Chevy Equinox and the Honda CR-V both have impressive fuel economies, so which vehicle will save you more time and money? The answer is clear: the Chevy Equinox. While its better highway fuel economy may only save you $20 more than the Honda CR-V each year, the Chevy Equinox’s larger fuel tank saves you trips to the pump (all calculations based on 20,000 miles travelled annually). In fact, the Chevy Equinox will need to be taken to the pump 9 times fewer per year than the Honda CR-V.

Though both the Chevy Equinox and the Honda CR-V offer fuel economies aimed to save you money, the Equinox’s larger gas tank allows for more efficiency in the long run.

Vehicle Safety Rating

When it comes to Safety ratings, the Honda CR-V is a better choice. Having been awarded one more star in its Front Crash test than the Chevy Equinox, its 5-Star Overall score beats the Equinox’s 4-Star overall.

Warranty Coverage

As is typical for all Chevy and Honda cars, both the Equinox and the CR-V feature 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. But when it comes down to the PowerTrain Limited warranties, the Chevy Equinox goes that extra mile… 40,000 extra miles, to be exact! That’s right, the Chevy Equinox’s 5-year/100,000-mile PowerTrain warranty is there to take you further.

In addition, the Chevy Equinox and the Honda CR-V both feature Roadside Assistance Programs. These programs feature the following services:

<> > Lockout Service – you will be assisted when you accidentally lock your keys inside the vehicle.

<> > Flat Tire Change – a spare will be installed for you.

<> > Fuel Delivery – If you run out of gas, $5 worth of fuel will be brought to you to get you back on the road.

<> > Emergency Towing – your car will be towed to your nearest dealer.

<> > Jump-Starts – you will be assisted if you need your car jump-started.

Though both vehicles come with the Roadside Assistance Program, the Chevy Equinox’s is longer lasting (5 years instead of Honda’s 3 years). Granted, the Honda’s program allows for unlimited mileage, but imagine you drive 20,000 miles per year; the difference is 40,000 miles! So Chevy’s Roadside Assistance is with you for 2 more years! This impressive warranty coverage makes the 2014 Chevy Equinox the clear choice for ensured vehicle reliability, and it exemplifies Chevy’s dedication to you.

Summary

While the Honda CR-V offers good fuel economy and an excellent NHTSA Safety Rating, the 2014 Chevy Equinox is simply the better choice. With its better fuel economy and larger gas tank along with its exceptional warranty coverage, Chevy built its 2014 Equinox with your satisfaction in mind.
