2015 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2015 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
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 Sport.

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). The Chevrolet Equinox is somewhat more expensive 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
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 Sport.

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 greatly out-muscles 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.
