With consumers more interested in SUVs these days than ever before, car manufacturers are trying to build out their SUV lineups and provide a larger selection across the board. One of the first places lifelong sedan-owners will look is into something similar to their cars, which is why compact SUVs and crossovers have become such a popular category. If you haven’t necessarily had issues with owning sedans, but want something a little more versatile, then a compact SUV could be an excellent choice. Most SUVs come with options for AWD, increased ground clearance, and plenty of cargo space. And it’s the same with compact SUVs. With so many models available, how do you choose? Fortunately for consumers, that means more options to compare. For a quick comparison, let’s go over two compact SUVs, the 2020 Chevy Equinox vs 2020 Ford Escape.
Chevy and Ford have a long history of battling it out between each other to see who is more renowned between the two North American car companies. While many of their battles have been between sports cars and pickup trucks, today, we have a worthy showdown between two of their popular SUVs.
When comparing two SUVs, it’s essential to take certain things into consideration. Since they’re compact, their starting prices shouldn’t be much different than some of the sedans you’ll see on the market. After all, these SUVs aren’t always bigger than a sedan, but they do come with some additional features. Also, you need to look at what kind of capabilities they have, as you would expect an SUV to have capabilities most sedans wouldn’t. When all is said and done, the most capable, affordable, and versatile machine is the victor. For many, that would mean the 2020 Chevy Equinox would come out on top. It has a lower starting price than the 2020 Ford Escape, and it either beats it in certain categories or puts up similar numbers.
