Don’t be fooled at the greater fuel economy that the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox can achieve - it does so at the expense of diminished cargo volume and performance, two factors that you’re sure to care a great deal about when looking for the right crossover.

In fact, there’s a lot to love in this regard about the 2018 RAV4, as inside you can relax on heated front seats, move throughout town with Integrated Navigation, and do so in ways that are much safer and more secure than the 2018 Equinox can claim.
