Chevy Trax vs. Equinox: Price

The 2020 Chevy Trax five-passenger SUV is set apart from the competition by a bold design and tons of inherent practicality. Providing a tidy exterior and car-like agility, this subcompact SUV is ideal for both Cheektowaga drivers looking to upgrade from cars and drivers looking to downsize from larger SUVs. Plus, starting at just $21,300, the Trax has a price in line with what some small to midsize sedans now cost, with the added benefits of an SUV. On the other hand, the 2020 Chevy Equinox five-passenger SUV provides even more room for passengers to stretch out, plus added cargo space for a starting price of just $23,800.

Chevy Trax vs. Equinox: Power & Efficiency

The Chevy Trax has plenty of power to get you from Cheektowaga to Lancaster and beyond efficiently. In fact, the Trax boasts a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine with plenty of power and impressive EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/31 mpg highway fuel efficiency ratings. The Chevy Equinox, on the other hand, achieves the same estimated fuel efficiency ratings, while providing a standard 1.5L 170-hp turbocharged engine. What’s more, the Equinox also offers an upgraded 2.0L turbocharged 250-hp engine.

Chevy Trax vs. Equinox: Space

If space is a high-priority, then the Chevy Equinox could be ideal for you. While both the Chevy Equinox and Trax boast seating for up to five passengers, the larger Equinox has more space for each passenger to stretch out, making it a more ideal family SUV in Depew. The Chevy Equinox also has significantly more cargo space than the Trax, at 63.9 cubic feet vs. 48.4 cubic feet, respectively.

Chevy Trax vs. Equinox: Capability

Compare the Chevy Equinox vs. Chevy Trax with regard to drivetrain choice, and they’re neck-and-neck.
