2020 Toyota RAV4 vs 2020 Chevy Equinox

Serving Enid, OK

Finding a crossover SUV that can live up to your lifestyle's demands is not an easy feat. While there are numerous compact crossover SUVs that you can look at, the Toyota RAV4 and the Chevrolet Equinox may easily take positions at the top of your list. The 2020 RAV4 is a fifth-generation crossover that is distinctly modern and rugged. The Equinox is a third-generation crossover, and it carries different style elements and features. Which model is an excellent match for your daily routine?

Exterior

The RAV4's exterior is entirely muscular with crisp lines and sharply molded surfaces. This crossover SUV has functional ground clearance with black lower-body molding and a metallic skid plate in the front. While the grille and the air vent that is mounted below it have down-turned corners, the LED headlights trend upward and outward in beautiful contrast. The RAV4 has dual exhaust tips mounted below the skid plate, a power liftgate, and a spoiler at the rear. The 2020 Chevy Equinox has an expected SUV profile with modest angles across the hood, windshield, and roof. The traditional Chevy grille has a modest crease running vertically over the SUV's nose. The grille rounds to the sides with triangular headlights and large fog lamps mounted below the headlights.

Interior

The interior of the 2020 RAV4 is styled to keep you comfortable and connected regardless of your day's plans. You can find leather sport seats in some or all trim levels; a rotary drive mode selector placed next to the leather-wrapped gear shifter. The metallic accent piece surrounding the center console and the lower portion of the center stack displays USB ports, the climate management system, wireless device features, etc. A floating display screen delivers access to the navigation equipment, the hands-free communication technologies, the smart device apps, and another tech. The 2020 Equinox has heated seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel in select trims. Some trims also may have a multi-zone climate control system, a display screen for the infotainment system technologies, USB ports, concealed storage spaces, and a few additional features.

Performance

Both of these smaller crossover SUVs are available with several four-cylinder powertrains and exciting horsepower ratings. The RAV4 pairs these powertrains with stabilizer bars, power steering, and an independent suspension system in the lower-level trims. A sport-tuned suspension system and a TRD-tuned suspension system are available in some RAV4 trims. On the other hand, the Equinox is only available with the multi-link rear and MacPherson front strut suspension system.
