When it comes to compact SUVs, Chevrolet and Toyota are among the most popular automakers that most buyers in Greenwood, Lexington, and Irmo choose from. Their beloved models, the 2020 Chevy Equinox and 2020 Toyota RAV4 are two great contenders, but which one should you go for? Below, we take a closer look at why the 2020 Chevy Equinox in Newberry, SC, deserves your attention.
2020 Chevy Equinox
Equipped with a pretty powerful engine and boasting a smooth and peaceful ride on all kinds of surfaces, the 2020 Chevy Equinox is an SUV that can carry up to five passengers. It is available in four trims, which include the entry-level L, LS, and LT, and the top-ranking Premier.
While a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that delivers 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque is standard, buyers can also opt for a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that produces 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional on all the models, except for the entry-level L.
The Equinox comes with a wide range of features, with even the base L model being pretty well-equipped. As you go higher up on the trim levels, you can find more features that get progressively fancier. Safety offerings such as forward collision alert, safety alert seat, side blind zone alert, and more are also available.
2020 Toyota RAV4
The 2020 Toyota RAV4 is an SUV available in six trim levels, which are the LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, TRD Off-Road, and Limited. Each of these models is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and capable of delivering 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
With the exception of the Adventure and TRD Off-Road (where all-wheel-drive is standard), front-wheel-drive is standard on the models. You can also opt for an all-wheel-drive.
Some appealing features of the RAV4 include controls that are quite user-friendly and intuitive, plenty of space for both passengers and cargo, as well as quiet interiors and a smooth and comfortable ride.
Safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning with steering assist, pre-collision with pedestrian detection, and more are available too but are lacking when compared to the sheer number of capabilities in the Chevy Equinox.
