Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Blazer than the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Blazer.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Blazer 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 Chevrolet Blazer 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. Both the Chevrolet Blazer and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Blazer is much wider than the Hyundai Santa Fe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Blazer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Handling
The Chevrolet Blazer 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 Chevrolet Blazer for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Blazer has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Blazer doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Blazer and the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Chevrolet Blazer has less cargo space than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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