With their savvy safety features and comfort-inducing cabins, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox and Ford Edge are fierce competitors. So how do you know which one to choose? Our comparison guide delves into the details.
Comfiest Cabin: 2019 Chevrolet Equinox
This category was a close one, but the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox ekes out a win. Not only does the Equinox ride feel smooth and composed, the cabin also delivers the roomy, supportive seating that travelers crave. The layout was designed with long-term comfort in mind, so you’ll never tire of road trips in your Equinox
In the Ford Edge, you’ll also enjoy quiet, comfortable cruising. There’s also some impressive head- and legroom in there, so your tall friends will feel completely at ease in either row. However, the Edge is tuned for a sportier performance, which can make the ride feel a bit stiff.
Hauls More Luggage: 2019 Ford Edge
Are you in need of a massive cargo hold? As a midsize crossover, the Edge provides a little extra space, with 39.2 cubic feet for your family’s road trip gear. The Chevrolet will force you to pack a little lighter, since the Equinox only features 29.9 cubic feet behind the rear seats.
Smartest Tech Lineup: 2019 Chevrolet Equinox
Chevy certainly has a reputation for delivering the tech goodies. The Equinox is no exception. Standard equipment includes everything from an in-cabin Wi-Fi connection to safety gear like forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. OnStar telematics calls for help when you need it. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard; this integration technology projects smartphone apps onto the 8-inch central touchscreen.
The Ford Edge is a close second. The Edge, too, offers complete smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. You just have to pay extra to get them. Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system is a driver favorite because it’s easy to figure out and quick to respond. However, the Edge doesn’t offer Wi-Fi connectivity or automatic emergency features like Chevy’s OnStar communications.
