2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Chevrolet Equinox, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Equinox, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Chevrolet Equinox is a better financial choice over the Hyundai Santa Fe, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Equinox, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Equinox doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Chevrolet Equinox has less seating than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making the Hyundai Santa Fe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Equinox has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
