2017 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 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. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. 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
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 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 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.
