Shopping for your Birmingham family’s next small SUV? With so many models on the market, it can be tough to find the one that feels like it was made just for you. Why not pivot your search to two longstanding competitors, the new Chevy Equinox and the Honda CR-V? Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover highlights the key differences between the 2021 Chevy Equinox vs. 2021 Honda CR-V, below.

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Starting Prices

If you need an SUV that’s easy on your budget, the $23,800 MSRP for the baseline 2021 Chevrolet Equinox L trim will probably sit better than the starting price for the 2021 Honda CR-V LX, which is $1,550 higher at $25,350 MSRP.

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Engines & Performance

The Chevrolet Equinox and CR-V both get a standard turbocharged engine delivering impressive performance specs, but the Equinox puts it to better use with a greater torque output:

  • 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

The CR-V horsepower is an impressive achievement, but many Vestavia Hills drivers will be better served by the extra torque offered by the Equinox. With greater torque, you can tow without straining the engine too much. Torque also aids you in garnering speed when you’re accelerating to enter the freeway or pass another driver.

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Smartphone Technology

From our contacts to our podcast lineups and starred playlists, much of our lives exist on our smartphones these days. Commuting to Bessemer becomes a lot less draining when you can access these features, and the Chevy Equinox offers more ways to do so! Compare the standard smartphone technology of the Chevrolet Equinox and the Honda CR-V, below:

  • 7-inch Infotainment Touchscreen – (CR-V’s standard screen is 5 inches)
  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ Integration – (standard in Equinox, requires upgrade in CR-V)
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot Capability – (standard in Equinox, requires upgrade in CR-V)

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V: Safety Technology

2021 Chevrolet Equinox models are more competitive than ever with the addition of Chevy Safety Assist technology! This newly standard suite of driver-assistive features can be directly compared to the CR-V’s Honda Sensing® suite. Check out what features are standard or available in both vehicles’ safety systems, below:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking (standard for both)
  • Forward Collision Alert (standard for both)
  • Lane Keeping Assist with Lane Departure Warning (standard for both)
  • 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)
  • Teen Driver Technology (exclusive to Equinox)

Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V Roadside Assistance

For journeys near and far, one of the perks of investing in a brand-new vehicle is the peace of mind that comes from Roadside Assistance coverage. From tire blowouts to an empty tank, you won’t be stranded for long with Chevrolet by your side. Compare the Chevrolet Equinox Roadside Assistance coverage to that of the Honda CR-V, below:

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