2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2021 Subaru Forester | Mission, TX
Are you on the hunt for a small, efficient, yet mighty crossover SUV for your family? If safety, interior comfort, and reliability are important considerations for your clan, then two of the top options on your list should be the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and the 2021 Subaru Forester. But which is the right vehicle for your family?
When you examine the two side by side, the 2021 Equinox emerges as the clear winner. Here’s why:
Under the hood
While both the 2021 Equinox and the 2021 Forester can tow approximately 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, the Equinox has the upper hand when it comes to torque. The standard Chevy Equinox pumps out 203 lb-ft of torque compared to just 176 from the Subaru Forester.
Every 2021 Chevrolet Equinox comes standard with Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, and IntelliBeam® Auto High Beam Assist. While the 2021 Subaru Equinox offers standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, it falls short of the Equinox, which boasts Teen Driver technology and an available Safety Alert Seat.
If unique style is your thing, go with the Chevy Equinox. You’ll have more choices, especially when it comes to special editions. For the 2021 model year, special edition Equinox models include Midnight, Redline, and Sport.
The base model of the Equinox starts nearly $1,000 less than the base model Forester.*
