For a vehicle that offers you a little bit of everything without sacrificing anything, take a look at the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox at Pohanka Chevrolet.

Let’s get started!

One of the main advantages to getting a crossover is its capability to move people and cargo with ease, and the 2016 Equinox lives up to that billing. It offers a comfortable 31.5 cubic ft. of cargo space1 in its trunk for you to fill, which is much more space than what is available in the Crosstrek. If that isn’t enough space, the Multi-Flex® sliding rear seat in the Equinox can fold down to open up a commodious 63.7 cubic ft. of room1. Once again, the Crosstrek is outmatched, as its maximum cargo space is limited to 51.9 cubic ft. The Multi-Flex® seat gives you plenty of options for fitting passengers in the 2016 Equinox as well. It is able to slide backward to open up an extra eight inches of legroom for second-row passengers, or move forward to make more room in the trunk. At its neutral position, the Equinox offers over four inches more room for second-row passengers than the Crosstrek. Overall, the Chevy Equinox offers 99.7 cubic ft. of passenger volume, which tops the 97.5 cubic ft. of room in the Subaru Crosstrek.

If you’re looking for power between the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox vs 2016 Subaru Crosstrek near Fairfax, VA, you’ll find it with the Equinox. It has a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that roars to life with 182 horsepower and 172 lb.-ft. of torque to get you moving on Fairfax Boulevard. If you’re in the Subaru Crosstrek, you’ll have trouble keeping up with its standard 2.0L BOXER® engine as it pumps out a paltry 148 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque. Even while the Equinox offers better power numbers, it excels when it comes to fuel economy as well. Chevy’s SUV holds a slight advantage with 32 MPG hwy2, compared to 31 MPG hwy3 on the Crosstrek.

The Equinox goes above and beyond with its available 3.6L V6 engine. It is able to give you unsurpassed power with best-in-class4 301 horsepower and provides sharp acceleration as the Equinox5 can rocket from 0-60 MPH in just 6.7 seconds. If you need power for hauling the Equinox’s V6 is well-equipped to get the job done as it records a 3,500-lb. towing capacity6. The Crosstrek doesn’t offer a V6 engine, so you’re limited only to its 4-cylinder engine.
