The compact crossover SUV is one of the most desirable options out there for a growing family around Hackettstown and Newton, and the 2018 Honda CR-V and 2018 Chevrolet Equinox are two of the most popular options in the segment. While both of these models are recently redesigned, they aren’t created equal. We put them side-by-side and found advantages for the Honda CR-V:

  • Standard performance specs
  • Dedicated cargo space
  • Max cargo space
  • NHTSA government crash safety scores

Find out which of these crossovers is better suited to your daily driving needs, and come test drive the CR-V at Sussex Honda in Newton, NJ.

Base Performance

The base engine on the Honda CR-V is a 2.4L four-cylinder that generates 184 hp. Compare that to the 2018 Chevy Equinox, which comes with a base turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine that only generates 170 hp — it’s a difference you’ll notice on the commute or the family road trip.

Passenger and Cargo Space

While both of these vehicles have seating for up to five passengers, the Honda CR-V far outsizes the Chevy Equinox; check the numbers for yourself.
