The 2013 Chevy Equinox vs. the 2013 Honda CR-V
The 2013 Chevy Equinox offers the space of an SUV while performing like a well-engineered car. Its comfortable, well-equipped interior makes it the perfect family vehicle. It also has an estimated fuel rating of 31 mpg on the highway, also making it a great car to battle high gas prices.
Families may also be considering the 2013 Honda CR-V. The mid-range, Equinox LT comes with more power and more standard and available features than the 2013 CR-V, so it might be a better buy. Here’s a look at how both vehicles matchup.
The Equinox, like the CR-V comes standard with a four-cylinder engine. While CR-V drivers get 162 lb-ft of torque, Equinox drivers get 172 lb-ft. This is still while maintaining the same fuel economy. Equinox drivers also have the option of trading up to a more powerful, V6 engine, available on higher trims. This option is not available to CR-V drivers.
Here are some of the features that are standard on the mid-level Equinox that are either non-standard or unavailable on the comparable CR-V.
- A power driver seat
- A premium sound system with satellite radio
- An onboard, handsfree communication system with telematics
- Chrome wheels
The Equinox also comes with Chevy protection, including 100,000 miles / five years of powertrain limited warranty and roadside assistance. This is compared to the 60,000 miles / five years powertrain warranty from Honda. Small crossovers see a lot of usage, so a strong plan is important to have.
