2017 Honda CR-V
2017 Chevrolet Equinox
When you compare the 2017 Honda CR-V with the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, it becomes quite clear which is the superior model. The CR-V provides excellent fuel economy, world-class safety ratings, and a well-equipped, spacious interior. Allow Silko Honda to tell you how these factors boost the 2017 Honda CR-V above the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox.
Just because you’re deciding to drive a crossover SUV, it doesn’t mean that you should compromise the fuel efficiency typically associated with smaller cars. In fact, when you drive the 2017 Honda CR-V, you can reach up to an EPA-estimated *26 mpg city and *32 mpg highway. These figures prove better than what you can expect from the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, which manages only 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. As such, it’s clear which model provides better fuel economy.
When you hit the road, you want to know that your car has been built to protect both you and your passengers. The 2017 Honda CR-V promises that kind of peace of mind, as proven by the experts. The **National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the CR-V its best-possible ranking of five stars out of five in all crash tests and for its overall rating. The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, on the other hand, didn’t do nearly as well in crash tests, receiving just four stars out of five in the majority of NHTSA crash tests. There’s no question that you’ll feel much safer behind the wheel of the new Honda CR-V.
In addition to these advantages over the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, the 2017 Honda CR-V comes more generously equipped and offers more storage space. Inside the cabin, the CR-V has automatic climate control as standard, as well as a 60/40-split folding rear seat, neither of which are available on the introductory Equinox. When you factor in interior space, the CR-V should win you over easily. Passengers will enjoy 105.9 cubic feet, and when you fold the rear seats flat, you can optimize the cabin for 75.8 cubic feet for cargo. The Equinox offers only 99.7 cubic feet for passengers, and a maximum of 63.7 cubic feet for storage.
