Fuel Economy

While the Honda CR-V has a better average fuel economy, it only saves you $15 more in gas than the Chevy Equinox annually (based on an average of 20,000 miles driven). So which vehicle really makes the greater difference?

With a gas tank that holds 3.5 more gallons of fuel than the Honda CR-V, the 2017 Chevy Equinox proves more efficient overall. In one year, the Equinox will save you more than 7 trips to refill your tank at the pump. This efficiency exemplifies Chevy’s belief that you should spend more time driving your vehicle and less time filling it up.

 

Vehicle Safety

For enhanced safety, the front shoulder belts of the Equinox are height-adjustable, and the rear seat shoulder belts have child comfort guides to move the belt to properly fit children. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages children to buckle up. The Honda CR‑V has only front height-adjustable seat belts.

Both the Equinox and CR‑V have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Equinox has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver’s seat and to know when they’re engaged. The CR‑V’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

To help make backing safer, the Equinox’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The CR‑V doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Equinox and the CR‑V have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front-wheel drive, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available all-wheel drive, collision warning systems, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems and rear parking sensors.

 

Warranty Coverage

As is typical for all Chevy and Toyota cars, both the Equinox and the CR-V feature 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. But in every other respect, the warranties that accompany the Chevy Equinox greatly surpass those of the Honda CR-V. The Chevy Equinox features 1 warranty that the Honda CR-V doesn’t offer. Unlike Honda, Chevy offers a 2 year Maintenance Warranty.  In other words,  Chevy pays for scheduled maintenance on the Equinox for 2 years and 24,000 miles. Chevrolet will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Honda doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the CR‑V, so the Equinox is much more budget friendly.

 

Summary

The Chevy Equinox’s comparable fuel economy, its exceptional warranty coverage, and impeccable vehicle safety make it the clear choice over the Honda CR-V.
