2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs. Toyota RAV4 | Bellefontaine, OH
Looking for an affordable, tech-filled SUV for your family in Bellefontaine, Ohio? We at Steve Austin’s Auto Group are big fans of the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and recommend it to many shoppers in our community. Here’s why we think it’s better than its competition — including the 2021 Toyota RAV4.
A Lower Price
Your money is important to you, so pick a vehicle that fits within your family’s budget. If you buy a model like the 2021 Toyota RAV4, you’re typically going to pay more than you would if you chose the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox.
As a low-priced option for families, the 2021 Equinox has a base starting price that’s almost $3,000 less than the cheapest new RAV4 you could buy in Bellefontaine.*
More Fun To Drive
Just because the Equinox is an economy-priced small SUV doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to drive. Its standard 1.5-liter Turbo engine produces more torque than the RAV’s standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine: 203 lb-ft vs. 184 lb-ft, respectively. That means great acceleration and responsiveness in the Equinox — even with a full caravan of passengers.
The 2021 Equinox also offers an array of stylish, sporty variants that add extra pizzazz: the blacked-out Midnight Edition, the athletic Sport Edition, and the street-tuned Redline Edition.
Packed With Better Technology
Children and parents need the basics covered when it comes to in-vehicle technology, and the 2021 Equinox comes with all the essentials. The automaker’s Teen Driver technology is a must if your child is going to learn to drive soon, and you won’t find a comparable system on the RAV4. If you’re the parent of an infant, Rear Seat Reminder is a worthwhile feature on the Equinox.
In addition to coming with all the standard safety and connectivity technologies you expect from Chevrolet, the Equinox also has optional upgrades like the rear-seat infotainment system with a DVD player. It’s a great feature if you take family road trips in Ohio, and it’s not available for the RAV4.
The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox is the better choice for many parents in Bellefontaine. See if it suits your family by taking it for a test drive at Steve Austin’s Auto Group.
