When it comes to compact SUVs and crossovers, the one thing that drivers don’t have to worry about is options! With so many drivers switching to the smaller SUVs for their better efficiency or because they offer more space than a regular sedan, automakers are pumping out more compact SUV models than ever before! And, with all the competition, compact SUVs are better and more valuable than ever, but which ones stand out from the crowd?
At Hesser Toyota, we always will endorse the Toyota model as the best for drivers. But it’s not enough to just tell you that, we’re going to show you as well!

When you look at the key model specifications and details of both the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and 2019 Chevy Equinox, it’s obvious why both are considered to be two of the top models in the compact SUV class. Both models offer solid efficiency to go along with good performance and roomy interiors for passengers and space. However, when you take into account all of those factors as a whole, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 offers the better well-rounded value.
One thing that drivers want in a compact SUV is efficiency. Otherwise, they’d probably just choose something larger and with more space! The 2019 Toyota RAV4 holds the edge over its Chevy rival when it comes to combined fuel economy, and still manages to also provide impressive performance. In terms of horsepower, the 2019 Chevy Equinox gets left in the dust.
With the 2019 Toyota RAV4’s advantages in performance and efficiency, it’d be easy to think that this means it had to sacrifice in terms of interior space. But that’s not the case as the 2019 Toyota RAV4 is able to offer essentially the same amount of passenger space while also offering significantly more when it comes to cargo space! And, the 2019 RAV4’s maximum cargo space, 69.8 cubic feet, still beats out the 2019 Equinox’s, 63.9 cubic feet.
