Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Terrain offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Hyundai Santa Fe, with comparable head- and legroom. 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 GMC Terrain.

Convenience
The Hyundai Santa Fe requires fewer stops at the gas station than the GMC Terrain, making it more convenient to drive.

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. Both the GMC Terrain and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

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. The GMC Terrain is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The GMC Terrain has much lower torque than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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
The GMC Terrain has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Hyundai Santa Fe. The GMC Terrain 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 GMC Terrain is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
