Looking to add a bit of style and authority to your next adventure around Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township? Well, you can do that with ease in the 2023 Chevy Equinox or Honda CR-V.
These two industry-leading SUVs showcase immaculate blends of performance, technology, and comfort, all within breathtaking designs. Odds are, though, that only one is the right fit for you. Which one is it?
To help you make that crucial decision, our team at Baierl Chevrolet has laid out everything you need to know in our 2023 Chevy Equinox vs. Honda CR-V comparison below. Read on, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!
TEEN DRIVER TECHNOLOGY
So, let’s start under the hood. Each SUV presents its own unique engine, each capable of more than enough power to help you cruise on city and neighborhood streets or long stretches of highway.
The 4-cylinder engine of the CR-V is certainly impressive, with plenty of kick behind each press of the gas pedal. However, with 179 lb-ft of torque, it doesn’t match the 203 lb-ft of torque churned out by the 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine of the Equinox.
To help you stay in control of all that power, either SUV can be equipped with all-wheel drive. This means you can tackle any and all road conditions, providing not just a more exciting driving experience, but a safer one as well.
The difference? The Chevy Equinox is available with Switchable All-Wheel Drive! So, when the road turns from pavement to dirt, you can switch to all-wheel drive on the fly. All it takes is a push of the AWD drive button in the Equinox.
While the Honda’s available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ can shift power to the rear wheels for maximum traction while turning, this feature cannot be turned on and off like the Chevy’s system.
Both SUVs are designed to provide peace of mind behind the wheel, so you can confidently bring the whole family along for the ride.
Each SUV is equipped with its own safety system: the Chevy Safety Assist and Honda Sensing® Safety technologies.
As unique as each system may be, the two showcase some overlapping features, such as:
Among all those shared features, however, the safety of one of these SUVs surely has to stand out. Look at some of the unique safety features of the Equinox, and you’ll realize it possesses an advantage over the CR-V.
For example, the Teen Driver technology is unique to the Equinox, and allows you to keep a closer eye on the family’s newest driver. Plus, with the available HD Surround Vision system, everyone can see your SUV and all its surroundings right on your central display.
Both SUVs put forth beautifully designed interiors filled with ways to get comfortable and connected. With the classification of SUV backing both, you can also be assured that each comes with plenty of interior space for you and your passengers to stretch your legs.
On the side of comfort, both put out some similar features like automatic climate control and adjustable front seating. Alongside additional perks, like heated seats, these features allow you to customize the feel of your interior.
Both come packed with plenty of infotainment to help you stay connected and entertained throughout the entire ride. Once again, the two remain equal in this category, with shared standard and available features like:
Two features you’ll only enjoy in the Equinox are Voice Command and available navigation! The first feature allows you to make hands-free calls and practice focused driving behaviors. The second feature gives you clear directions to where you need to go. Plus, it even has enhanced voice recognition.
The 2023 Chevy Equinox and Honda CR-V clearly have plenty to offer your rides around Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township. However, with its added power, technology, and safety, the Equinox emerges as the clear winner.
