Fuel Economy

By 1 city and 3 highway miles per gallon, the Chevy Equinox has a better gas mileage than the Kia Sorento.  This will save you from taking as many trips to the gas station and in the long run, will save you quite a bit of money!  Here at Chevy, we believe that you should be spending more time driving your car than filling it up, and the Equinox’s superior gas mileage will help you do so.


Vehicle Safety

The Chevrolet Equinox has Daytime Running Lights to help keep it more visible under all conditions. Studies show that driving with lights during the day reduces accidents by 11% by making vehicles more conspicuous. The Sorento doesn’t offer Daytime Running Lights.

The Equinox has standard OnStar®, which uses a GPS receiver and a cellular system to get turn-by-turn driving directions, remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Sorento doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated, help may not come as quickly.

Both the Equinox and the Sorento 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, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, available all wheel drive, collision warning systems, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rear parking sensors and rear cross-path warning.


Warranty Coverage

While Chevrolet has a 3-year/36,000 mile Bumper-to-Bumper warranty and a 5-year/60,000 PowerTrain warranty, Kia has a 5-year/60,000 mile Bumper-to-Bumper warranty and a 10-year/100,000 mile PowerTrain warranty.  In this respect, it may seem like Kia provides the better option.  This, however, is not the case.  Chevy is able to offer two unique warranties that Kia doesn’t cover!

So what features does the Equinox have that the Sorento does not? First, the Chevy Equinox comes with a Roadside Assistance Program. This program features 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.

By including this Roadside Assistance Program as well as a 2-year Maintenance warranty, Chevy gives you two more reasons to choose the Equinox over the Sorento. This impressive warranty coverage makes the 2016 Chevy Equinox the clear choice for ensured vehicle reliability, and it exemplifies Chevy’s dedication to you.



The Chevy Equinox’s superior fuel economy and its exceptional warranty coverage make it the clear choice over the Sorento.
