2015 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2015 Honda CR-V

Are You Shopping for a 2015 Chevy Equinox in Central Illinois?

Central Illinois drivers have spoken loud and clear: the crossover is the future of the family vehicle for many of you. That said, the 2015 Chevy Equinox may seem like an appealing option as a new family car. The standard 2.4L engine is rated at 32 highway and 22 city mpg and is capable of 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. The Equinox comes with Bluetooth phone connectivity too, but the rest of the LS’s features are limited to air conditioning, power locks and windows, and a six-speaker stereo system. If you’re looking for anything more than that—Bluetooth audio streaming, a rearview camera, Chevy MyLink infotainment—you’ll need to upgrade.

We think drivers shouldn’t need to spend extra for modern amenities on a crossover, and all of these features come standard on the 2015 Honda CR-V. Central Illinois drivers can find the 2015 CR-V at one of our dealerships right now, and we’re proud to say that our favorite crossover was named the Motor Trend 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year. Honda’s commitment to value, safety, and a forward-thinking design helped earn it that award, making it a smart choice for our area drivers. Don’t forget the powertrain, either; it was recently updated. Honda’s engine is a 2.4L as well, yet it is rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and 2015 CR-V 2WD models are rated at an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg,* telltale signs of the superior engine.
