2018 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Chevrolet Equinox. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Equinox, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Santa Fe, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Hyundai Santa Fe will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Equinox, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Hyundai Santa Fe will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Equinox.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Santa Fe greatly out-muscles the Chevrolet Equinox.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Equinox, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Chevrolet Equinox.
