2015 GMC Terrain vs 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

As we’ve stated previously numerous times, the midsize crossover segment is quickly escalating to become one of the biggest in the market. One of our favorites is the GMC Terrain, but it obviously has plenty of competition out there in such a diverse classification. We wanted to take a look at it in comparison to a midsize crossover that has been around a little bit longer, as the Terrain was only introduced 5 years ago in 2010. We decided to take a look at the 2015 GMC Terrain vs 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, as the Hyundai has been around since 2000 before the crossover craze truly kicked off.

Advantages of the GMC Terrain

As we’ve seen many comparisons play out in the past, the battle between the Terrain and Santa Fe Sport comes down mostly to fuel economy versus power. But in this case, the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport’s measly 8-horsepower advantage doesn’t hold a candle to the 2015 GMC Terrain’s fairly substantial advantage in both city and highway fuel efficiency.

For starters, you’re not going to need to stop at the gas station nearly as many times in the GMC Terrain thanks to the extra 5 litres in its fuel tank capacity. But when you do stop at the gas station, you’ll be saving quite a bit of cash behind the wheel of a GMC Terrain instead of a Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. On the city streets of Edmonton, the Terrain utilizes 1.2 litres less per 100 kilometres. Then when you get onto the highway, you’ll be utilizing 1.4 l/100km less than the Hyundai.

This might not seem like that big of a difference, but those savings each time you fill up will eventually add up to fairly substantial financial savings. So if you like saving money, set up a test drive right here on our website and get yourself in the driver’s seat of a 2015 GMC Terrain.
