2016 Chevy Equinox vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson
For those who want the room of an SUV but the practicality and maneuvering of a smaller vehicle, a crossover is a no-brainer. With their fuel efficiency and spacious interior, the average consumer no longer has to choose between the two, and both the Chevrolet Equinox and Hyundai Tucson offer tons of features for not a lot of money.
A quick look at the two models shows the restyled Equinox as a slightly bigger crossover that screams luxury with a roomier feel and an active noise-cancelling feature in the engine, giving you a smooth and quiet ride. On the other hand, the Tucson went the fun and efficient route with a sportier look and an engine that delivers peppy acceleration. When it comes to safety the two crossovers are very similar, both sporting 4-wheel ABS, airbags, traction control, and tire pressure monitor...however the Equinox comes standard with a vehicle anti-theft system and in-vehicle communications and assistance services while the Tucson does not, so if emergency situation preparedness is the name of the game then we suggest going the Equinox route.
