When it comes to versatility and capability, the compact SUV market is incredibly diverse and competitive. The 2021 Chevy Equinox is one of the most popular vehicles in this segment, and its main competitor is the 2021 Toyota RAV4.

Today, our dealers at Patriot Chevrolet of Warminster want to pit these two vehicles against one another so you can decide which model works best for you.

Performance Details

People who are familiar with Chevy vehicles know how performance-oriented they are. For example, the 2021 Equinox features a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 252 horsepower. This edges out the only engine option available for the Toyota RAV4, which can only produce 203 horsepower.

The engine noise in the 2021 Chevy Equinox can barely be heard on the road, while the Toyota RAV4’s engine produces some noticeable road noise whenever you speed up. Both SUVs also provide smooth rides no matter where you drive, but the Chevy Equinox has exceptionally capable handling for a compact SUV.

Technology Features

The Chevy Equinox and the Toyota RAV4 are both equipped with outstanding driver-assistance technology. Forward collision alert lets you know if a crash is imminent, while Automatic Emergency Braking can help mitigate accidents altogether.

However, the Chevy Equinox comes with exclusive Teen Driver technology. This allows you to limit specific vehicle configurations and match them with a particular key fob. Plus, Teen Driver technology also provides in-vehicle progress reports so you can help your teen learn better driving habits.
