Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson 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 Tucson.

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 Tucson, 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). The GMC Terrain is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Tucson. 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 Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is a little narrower than the Hyundai Tucson, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Tucson, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the GMC Terrain transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Tucson.

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 Tucson. The GMC Terrain has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Tucson.

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