If you’re looking for great value in a small SUV, both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Honda CR-V should be right at the top of your list. Still, only one offers more standard technology features, in-cabin amenities, and capability for the price. For a closer look at how the Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V compare on those points, read the guide below from Biggers Chevrolet before browsing our pre-owned and new vehicles for sale near Schaumburg.

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Performance

A compact crossover may have a small footprint, but that doesn’t mean you need power to rival that of a larger SUV. See how the Equinox and CR-V stack up in terms of engine output, below:

  • 2021 Chevrolet Equinox Base Engine – 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder achieves 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque
  • 2021 Honda CR-V Base Engine Inline 4-cylinder with turbocharger achieves 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque

You’ll note that while the Honda CR-V engine generates more horsepower, the Equinox engine makes more than 20 pound-feet more torque. How do those differences play out on the road in Streamwood? Horsepower provides speed for passing and merging, while torque is the twisting force of a vehicle’s wheels that enables it to tow heavy loads.

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Smartphone Integration 

Today’s drivers expect any SUV to be equipped with the latest tech essentials, including Apple Car-Play®/Android Auto™ smartphone compatibility. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Honda CR-V provide this feature, but the Equinox does so at a price that’s easier on your wallet. In addition, the Equinox offers several standard features that can only be accessed on the CR-V with a trim upgrade:

  • 7-inch Infotainment Touchscreen (vs. a 5-inch standard screen on the CR-V)
  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ Integration (requires upgrade on the CR-V)
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot Capability (requires upgrade on the CR-V)

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Driver-Assist Safety Features

The Chevrolet Equinox and Honda CR0V base trims watch offer a comprehensive suite of safety features, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Keeping Assist with Lane Departure Warning. However, certain Equinox safety features are unavailable or more difficult to access on the CR-V:

  • Front Pedestrian Braking (standard for Equinox, available for CR-V)
  • Following Distance Indicator (standard for Equinox, available for CR-V)
  • IntelliBeam automatic high beams (exclusive to Equinox)

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Roadside Assistance Limits

Whether you’re in downtown Bartlett or far from Hanover Park, a breakdown doesn’t need to ruin your day. Chevrolet Equinox and Honda CR-V drivers alike are supported by excellent roadside assistance packages, but the Chevy program’s longer coverage term is a better value: 

  • 2021 Chevrolet Equinox Roadside Assistance 60 months/60,000 miles
  • 2021 Honda CR-V Roadside Assistance 36 months/36,000 miles
