If you’re on the hunt for a vehicle that drives like a sedan, provides space for an active lifestyle, and maintains efficient gas mileage in the process, the crossover SUV market is sure to have your answer. Fortunately, Chevrolet offers two dynamic crossovers to suit virtually any driver’s unique situation and needs. For 2018, Chevy completely redesigned the Equinox and the Traverse, endowing both SUVs with a bevy of fresh features and enhanced capabilities. If you’re having a tough time choosing between the compact Equinox and the midsize Traverse, let us compare their redesigned 2018 models to make the decision clearer.
Seating capacity is one of the most obvious differences between these two Chevy SUVs, with seats for five in the Equinox and room for up to eight in the Traverse. The Equinox provides supportive seating and ample legroom for everyone on board, while the Traverse promises a plush ride with cushioned seating and easy access to the back row. Families will find two sets of LATCH car seat connectors in either vehicle, and both models provide plenty of overhead clearance for taller riders. A 7-inch touchscreen comes standard in both SUVs, as does smartphone connectivity via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay®. the Equinox also comes with a built-in OnStar Wi-Fi hotspot.
Even though the Equinox is technically in a smaller class than the Traverse, the compact surprisingly offers more cargo space than its midsize counterpart. The Traverse presents a generous 23 cubic feet of storage room behind its rear seats, and that area expands to 57.8 cubic feet when you fold the back row. The Equinox features a 29.-cubic-foot cargo area in the back, which opens to 63.5 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down.
