2016 Honda CR-V vs 2016 Chevy Equinox
Since winning the 2015 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the year award, the Honda CR-V has somewhat fallen into the shadows thanks to all of the incredible new vehicles for the 2016 model year. We thought we’d refresh your memory by taking a closer look at it again, and we wanted to see how it measures against one of its biggest competitors. With all of that in mind, we decided to compare the 2016 Honda CR-V vs 2016 Chevy Equinox to see the differences and similarities between each.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda CR-V
Taking a look at the table above you can see that the two vehicles are actually a lot more comparable than one might have originally thought. Starting from the top, the CR-V offers better combined fuel efficiency than the Equinox. While it might not be a mind-blowing advantage, utilizing 0.7 litres less fuel every 100 kilometres driven is a pretty nice perk, as you’ll end up saving quite a bit of money in the long run.
In power, however, the two vehicle are nearly identical. The Honda CR-V does generate 3 extra horsepower, but honestly that wouldn’t be very noticeable if you were to drive each vehicle back to back. However, the Honda CR-V is indisputably superior in terms of space, both for cargo and passengers.
Behind the back row of seats awaits a whopping 37.2 cubic feet of space to fill with whatever cargo you might need to bring along, which is actually 5.7 cu. ft. more than the Equinox offers. In the cabin, the Honda crossover offers nearly 11 whole cu. ft. of extra space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in, which is definitely a plus if you drive around children who might get on each other’s nerves often.
