2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, with comparable 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 Sport.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Equinox or the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is a little narrower than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Equinox has much lower torque than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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