2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2021 Toyota RAV4 | Edinburg, TX
If you’ve been looking for an SUV around Edinburg, Texas, that can keep up with your adventurous lifestyle, you’re spoiled with choices. But, while there may be an abundance of options, there’s only one 2021 Chevrolet Equinox. With a finely tuned powertrain, a comfortable, well-equipped cabin, and industry-leading safety tech, it puts would-be competitors like the 2021 Toyota RAV4 to shame.
Power and Control
Whether you’re ferrying your kids around Edinburg or hitting the trails, the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox has the hardware you need to go hardcore. Under the hood, you’ll find a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that belts out 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the base engine in the 2021 RAV4 can only muster up 184 lb-ft of torque, and the available hybrid option trails even further behind with just 176 lb-ft.
Comfort and Style
Given that the starting price of the 2021 RAV4 is well over $2,000 more than the Equinox, you’d expect it to offer more interior comfort.* However, the Chevy SUV easily outpaces the Toyota SUV with a superior 40 inches of front headroom and 39 inches of rear legroom. We all know that cramped passengers get cranky, so why would you pay more for less?
Entertainment and Safety
Chevrolet understands that parents just like you are always looking for ways to keep kids occupied on the go. That’s why the Equinox offers an available rear-seat infotainment system with a DVD player. Mounted right into the back of the front headrests, these 8-inch screens will let your youngsters pop in their favorite flick, slap on a set of headphones, and let the hours pass them by without notice. The RAV4 doesn’t have a comparable option.
The 2021 Equinox also thoroughly trounces the RAV4 when it comes to active safety technology. Every model comes standard with Chevy Safety Assist, which includes a Rear Seat Reminder that Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 doesn’t offer. Plus, you can use the standard Teen Driver technology in the Equinox to set limitations on the burgeoning driver in your life, and use an in-vehicle report card to evaluate their performance and teach them the rules of the road.
