2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Traverse than the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe, 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 Traverse, 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). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Santa Fe. 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 Traverse and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Hyundai Santa Fe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Traverse will do just as well as the Hyundai Santa Fe, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

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