Hondacr-vWe get drivers coming to West Michigan Honda Dealers every day looking for their next SUV, and when they’re shopping around for vehicles like the 2015 Chevy Equinox alongside out 2015 Honda CR-V, well, price is obviously a concern. Honda has a reputation as one of the most affordable automakers in the business, though, and the CR-V continues that trend.

Let’s see just what the difference is between these two models, besides the cost.

Drivers Get More in a Honda

Let’s start with the price and work from there. The 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD LX is priced starting at just $23,320 (MSRP)* compared to the Chevy’s $24,520, and you might expect Chevy to offer drivers more for the higher price. But not only does Honda gives drivers more in the way of great standard features, the CR-V is also more fuel efficient:

  • 2015 CR-V 2WD LX models earn an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg and 27 city mpg.**
  • The Equinox only manages 32 mpg on the highway and drops all the way down to 22 city mpg.

And then there are the features. The 2015 CR-V has one of the best standard features packages in its class—and that’s before we even look at the four different trim levels—including

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
  • Touchscreen infotainment system (the Honda i-MID)
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls for audio, cruise, and phone
  • Standard rearview camera system

Chevrolet does make modern amenities like these available to drivers of the Equinox, it would be foolish not to, but in order to put it on par with the CR-V, you’d need to upgrade some of the Equinox’s features.
