2018 GMC Terrain 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 GMC Terrain, 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 GMC Terrain and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain as you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe, 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 GMC Terrain will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. The GMC Terrain will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Terrain 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 GMC Terrain, 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 GMC Terrain doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the GMC Terrain for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Terrain has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

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