2016 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

At the top of the mid-size SUV segment, the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe provides a more commanding powertrain, better fuel efficiency, and more superior features for both than its competitors. The 2016 Chevrolet Traverse has been getting some attention among drivers around Chambersburg, PA, but when you compare it to the 2016 Santa Fe, Hyundai's SUV proves to be the winner. Keep reading to find out how the Santa Fe outshines the Traverse, and then head to Massey Hyundai in Hagerstown, MD to see this new model.

Powertrain and Efficiency

Both the 2016 Santa Fe and the 2016 Traverse are equipped with powerful engines to haul around a lot of cargo and passengers. They both offer one V6 engine, but the Santa Fe's 3.3L V6 puts Hagerstown and Chambersburg drivers in command of more horsepower than the Traverse's 3.6L V6: 290 hp on the Santa Fe vs. 281 hp on the Traverse. Even with the dual exhaust tip option on the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, it still falls short of the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe by only offering 288 hp.

Some Chambersburg drivers might think that having more power would cause your efficiency to suffer, but that's not the case with the Hyundai Santa Fe. The 2016 Traverse will only see drivers earning 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with AWD, while the 2016 Santa Fe will earn up to 18 mpg in the city and 24 on the highway with AWD. Efficiency is also comparable with FWD - but either way, the Santa Fe will give you more power.

Superior Features

While the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse has four trims to choose from that will offer a number of high-tech features with some of the upper-level trims, the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe only has two trims that are both packed to the gills with fantastic amenities. Hagerstown and Chambersburg drivers will find the following standard features on the entry-level Santa Fe but not on the entry-level Traverse:

  • 8-way power driver's seat
  • Heated front seats
  • Blue Link telematics system
