2018 Chevy Equinox vs. 2017 Ford Escape Comparison in Winston Salem

  • Starting off, the new Equinox comes at a lower price than the Escape, which is still a model year behind. That trend continues as you advance trim levels, upgrade to 4x4 or AWD setups, and add more features and options, so the Equinox is the clear choice if you're minding your budget.
  • Small SUVs are ideal if you can make them your everyday vehicles, so fuel efficiency is clearly important. In that regard, the new Equinox bests the Escape in fuel efficiency, and you can get up to 40 highway mpg when you opt for the turbo diesel engine in the Chevy SUV, which isn't available in the Ford model.
  • Comfort is key, and the Equinox affords a great deal more passenger space than the Escape. The adjustable seating in the Equinox means you can cede some rear-seat passenger room for more cargo storage area.

2018 Chevy Equinox vs. 2017 Honda CR-V Comparison in Winston Salem

  • Though built for durability and reliability, the Equinox comes with strong protection plans, with a longer corrosion / rust thru warranty and a longer roadside assistance program, when compared with what the CR-V offers.
  • Once again, the available turbo diesel engine option you can select in the Equinox offers better efficiency than the only other engine option in the CR-V, a turbo four-cylinder. You also can sacrifice some mpgs for better performance with an optional V-6 in the Equinox, which isn't offered with the CR-V.
  • In-car technology is key in today's ultra-connected, modern world, and you'll find the infotainment and connectivity features that are standard or available in the Equinox best the CR-V's offerings. In the Chevy SUV, these include standard MyLink concierge services, available OnStar telematics and even a teen driver system that watches how your young one handle being behind the wheel of the Equinox.

2018 Chevy Equinox vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4 Comparison in Winston Salem

  • The starting price of the Equinox is considerably lower than what the new RAV4 commands, and future editions of the popular Toyota crossover are bound to cost even more. Furthermore, adding more features, advancing trim levels and including special packages in your Equinox will be more cost effective than outfitting a RAV4 in a similar manner.
  • Fuel efficiency throughout the engine options available in the new Equinox best the offerings from the RAV4. This is especially true in the available turbo diesel setup for the Equinox, which isn't offered with the RAV4.
  • Leg room in the back of the Equinox is considerably more spacious - and more comfortable - than the RAV4, making the Chevy option the better choice if you plan on fitting adults in the rear seats.

2018 Chevy Equinox vs. 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Comparison in Winston Salem

  • You're probably sensing a trend, but it's worth repeating, as the Equinox once again proves to be the more efficient crossover when compared to the likes of the Santa Fe Sport and other small SUVs.
  • Another trend that seems to be the case across the board is pricing. Once again, the Equinox starts off at a lower price than the Santa Fe Sport, and that continues as you advance trim levels and add special packages.
  • The Equinox has more engine options and more special packages with available features than the choices the Santa Fe Sport provides. With the Equinox, you can more easily customize your ride than if you were to choose the Santa Fe Sport.

2018 Chevy Equinox vs. 2017 Kia Sportage Comparison in Winston Salem

  • Once again, the Equinox bests the Sportage in terms of fuel efficiency, with the Kia crossover coming with fewer engine options as well.
  • The interior dimensions of the Equinox are more spacious than what the Sportage offers, meaning passengers will enjoy more comfortable seating, and you'll be able to fit more cargo inside your Chevy crossover.
  • The kinds of infotainment, MyLink systems and OnStar telematics in the Equinox are affordably available and offer you a more comprehensive set of connectivity features than the Sportage.
