Billings and Lockwood drivers shouldn’t need to spend too long trying to decide between the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse. When it comes down to it, the model able to supply stronger performance, vastly superior efficiency ratings, and an unparalleled selection of standard and available features is sure to walk away victorious, and that’s just what the Santa Fe does. Keep reading to learn more in this quick comparison of the 2017 Santa Fe and the 2017 Traverse.


The power and efficiency of the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse probably seems more than acceptable when you don’t compare the vehicle to anything else on the road. With a 3.6L V6 engine producing up to 281 horsepower as standard and a basic 6-speed automatic transmission system allowing up to 15 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway, you might think there’s little to complain about.

That is, until you take a look at the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. Its 290-horsepower 3.3L V6 engine provides more power than the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder, and the Mazda CX-9, not to mention the Chevrolet Traverse. A 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC and Active ECO technology ensures up to 18 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway. You’ll enjoy stronger performance while spending less on fuel.

Superior Features

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe starts making the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse look underequipped from the word go. For example, it provides an 8-way power driver’s seat as standard instead of the Chevy’s 4-way manual alternative. The differences between the two become even more pronounced as you work your way up their trim levels.

Here’s just a short selection of the technologies you’ll be able to use with the Santa Fe but not with the Traverse:

  • Multi-View Camera System: Four cameras combine to create a 360-degree view around your Santa Fe.
  • Android Auto: Lets you sync your smartphone to the vehicle, then use voice commands to do anything from dictate messages to find destinations for the navigation system.
  • Quantum Logic Sound System: This state-of-the-art 12-speaker sound system users Clari-Fi technology to help restore the proper sound quality of digitally compressed music.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Thoroughly Outperforms the 2017 Chevy Traverse
