2018 Honda CR-V vs 2018 Chevrolet Equinox near Smyrna, DE

Finding a compact SUV can be a challenge if you require an option with ample room, generous accommodations, and plenty of power. However, here at Price Honda, we firmly believe that the 2018 Honda CR-V is equipped to live up to your expectations! Before you stop by our showroom at 4567 S DuPont Hwy in Dover, DE, for a test drive, check out this head-to-head battle between the CR-V and one of its segment rivals, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

Interior Space

Whether you have a growing family unit or just require a versatile interior for your weekend adventures, the 2018 CR-V is prepared to deliver what you need. For the utmost in cargo space1, you can fold down the second-row seats to free up a maximum of 75.8 cubic ft. to stow larger items with complete ease. To compare, the Chevy Equinox misses the mark by only supplying you with 63.4 cubic ft. of space2 for the same dimension. When it comes to passenger comfort, the Equinox once again fails to equal the CR-V, supplying just 40.9 and 39.7 inchces of front and rear legroom, respectively. Meanwhile, occupants of the SUV from Honda will certainly appreciate the generous front and rear legroom dimensions of 41.3 and 40.4 inches.

Interior Amenities

Of course, when it comes to your vehicle’s interior, having enough space is only part of the equation. You’ll also want to access a variety of amenities to make the most out of your time on the road. The 2018 Honda CR-V steps up the challenge by enabling you to equip your ride with an available 9-speaker sound system, so you can enjoy outstanding audio on your way to Lemon Leaf Café. In comparison, the 2018 Equinox is available with a 7-speaker setup, limiting your listening experience. Furthermore, you might struggle to get comfortable in the SUV from Chevy since it only comes with an optional 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Thankfully, the CR-V is prepared to keep you cozy with its more versatile available 12-way power chair for the person at the helm.

Performance

We know you’re anxious to learn about the muscle that awaits you beneath the hood, so let’s conclude this review by taking a look at how the Honda CR-V and Chevrolet Equinox perform. In one corner, we have the Honda and its standard 2.4L 4-cylinder powertrain. Producing a thrilling 184-hp, this system is eager to get your blood pumping. In the other corner, the Equinox’s 1.5L turbo engine just can’t keep up, as it generates just 170-hp. Furthermore, you’ll likely experience improved responsiveness in the CR-V, thanks to its Continuously Variable Transmission. With the standard L trim of the SUV from Chevy, you might not find the 6-speed automatic transmission to be as lively.

We hope that this comparison of the 2018 Honda CR-V vs 2018 Chevrolet Equinox near Smyrna, DE, has demonstrated why the CR-V is the better option. If you have any question or would like to schedule an appointment at Price Honda, feel free to contact us at 302-734-1000. We’d love to speak with you!

I would like to comment on my visit to Price Honda on Friday the 28th. i scheduled an appointment for 2:30 for an oil change. I arrived 5 minutes early , one of their staff greeted me immediately, took all my information and asked what my visit was for. They informed me that it would take about 45 minutes or longer for this service. I went inside to wait room , where they had coffee and drinks, nice relaxing area. I was approached around 3:15 to inform me that my car was ready ........ check out was quick and they went over the report for my 2011 Honda Accord. Very Pleased and Happy !!!!

I bought my 2016 Honda Civic in April of last year. Brian Tapley helped me purchase my first financed car, and he was awesome. I was very indecisive, however he never made me feel pressured to make a decision and answered all of my questions. Since purchasing my car I have had it serviced and received excellent customer service. Everything is always explained thoroughly and I leave knowing my car was well taken care of.

Thorough and efficient service. My van door was stuck open about 2 miles from the dealership. I pulled into service without an appt at noon. Krissy signed me in quickly and had the car scheduled quickly. Problem was diagnosed and fixed within a few hours. Communication via text and phone was excellent during time away from car. Not 5 stars because Price insists on a full diagnoses for most situations. This leads to identifying maintenance work that may not be necessary at the time. It costs about $135 and can lead to excessive up-selling. Identified issues are real but many are not necessary immediately. This leads to a lot of decision making which can be forced since they have the car and time is important to us all. As the saying goes, buyer beware.

My service advisor, Kristi, provides prompt feedback and always worked with me to provide cost effective solutions to my issues. I can say that, across two counties, and 6 states/provinces, Kristi has been the best service advisor I have had related to vehicle maintenance.

Justin Silva was recommended to us by a happy customer who had just purchased a CRV through him. We were so pleased with the service he gave us and the knowledge he had about the car! He was attentive and helpful and demonstrated a singular customer focus. He has gained us as loyal customers for the Price Honda dealership. So go to Price for your auto needs and make sure to ask for Justin We wanted to add a note about our recent experience with the Service Department. Nicole Mangone was our service rep and everything she did for us exceeded expectations. We needed some repainting done on our new lease and she had the paint rep come out to speak with us. They gave us a loaner car and said it could take a week. They were done in 3 days! Tracy also assisted us and was equally as helpful. It is so obvious to us that Price Honda works very hard to be the leader in car dealerships. They are a 5 Star operation from Sales to Service!
