2019 Toyota RAV4 vs 2019 Chevrolet Equinox in New Castle, DE

Nowadays, you can’t take a drive down the block without seeing a huge number of SUVs. This vehicle segment that barely seemed to exist just a while ago has skyrocketed into being one of the most popular types of automobiles. With so many available, it’s easy to think that they’re all very similar, but there are without a doubt those that stand out above the rest. One of these is the 2019 Toyota RAV4, which has superior performance, technology, and safety features compared to many of the other models that you would think would be comparable. To prove our point, we’ll measure the Toyota up against the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox. If this comparison sparks your curiosity, feel free to visit Price Toyota to see it yourself and take it on a test drive.

Safety

To begin, let’s take a look at how each model handles arguably the most important aspect of driving, the safety. One of the leading manufacturers in accessible safety innovations, Toyota utterly outshines Chevrolet in this regard. Although the Equinox offers similar features on its higher-level trims, it has almost no intelligent safety measures present in its standard trim. The RAV4, on the other hand, provides you with superb safety measures such as the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection1, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist2, Lane Tracing Assist3, and more! These actively track your environment with cameras and radars and will automatically take safety measures and give you alerts if you find yourself in a dangerous situation.

Technology

Jump into the cockpit of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and you’ll be greeted by a great number of technological features to keep you happy and comfortable. Both the RAV4 and Equinox come with a 7-inch diagonal touchscreen as standard, however the RAV4 starts to pull ahead when it comes to its sound system. Beyond their standard sound systems, both cars have available upgrades. The Equinox can only be upgraded to a 7-speaker system, whereas your RAV4 nearly doubles its original speakers to a whopping 11. Jamming will never have felt so fun! Finally, to really personalize your driver’s seat, the Toyota comes standard with a 6-way adjustable chair. The Equinox, on the other hand, will only provide you with a standard 4-way adjustable chair.

Performance

Finally we come to the powertrain of each SUV, the heart that pumps energy throughout the entire vehicle. The Equinox will provide you with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine delivering 170 horsepower and 203 lb.-ft. of torque on its base trim. This is certainly respectable, but might start to seem a bit weak after you see the RAV4’s standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine pumping out 203 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. And even while generating that much more power, the Toyota operates at a more-efficient 26/35/30 MPG city/hwy/combined4, whereas the Equinox only operates at a 26/32/29 MPG city/hwy/combined5 fuel efficiency.

The choice is always yours when it comes to what vehicle you’ll drive next, but we at Price Toyota wanted to help give you a better idea of the market by comparing the 2019 Toyota RAV4 vs 2019 Chevrolet Equinox in New Castle, DE. If you think you want to make the Toyota yours, just pay us a visit! We’ll be glad to help you with anything you could need.

We had a very good experience buying our car here and just took it in for service. The service staff were very friendly and professional verifying our scheduled service and asking "is there anything else we can do for you ". Mentioned a noisy power seat back and this was diagnosed and parts ordered. We were given the name of a service person who kept us updated on the progress of the repairs. They were able to fix an issue with a hard shifting transmission with a computer update that our local dealer told us did not exist. Very satisfied and worth the extra drive for such a well run, friendly and professional business.

I was extremely pleased to see the business following social distancing protocols. Service attendants wore masks and kept their distance. They cleaned the car before and after servicing it. My remote key was placed in a plastic bag for my own safety. I was impressed and satisfied!

I had a great experience buying my Camry from Nikolaus! He (and the whole Price Toyota team) made me very comfortable buying my first car, accommodated my unusual scheduling needs during quarantine, and made the whole process smooth and easy. They were honest and upfront about costs and options, which I really appreciated, and I got a great rate from them. Would definitely recommend purchasing from Nikolaus at Price Toyota!

Came in on Memorial Day (I know... But I had to) and was seen immediately by Nick. He took the time to show me my first choice which was pre-owned. Didn't try to sell me new until I asked about the current promotion on new cars. He was bale to get me deal on a new car that was in my price range. All-in-all, I was in and out in under two hours. Very impressed.
