Comparison: 2020 Chevrolet Blazer vs 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe

Advantage Chevrolet Blazer

The ace up the Blazer’s sleeve is the V6 engine, which delivers superior power and better towing capacity. We also liked the second-row sliding seats that offer significant extra space.

Advantage Hyundai Santa Fe

Hyundai offers a better base warranty, a more affordable starting price and 4WD availability across the board.

Similarities

The technological offer is quite similar. You have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard in both models. Neither of these urban creatures was designed to venture far off the paved road. Fuel consumption is also very even, in fact I’d say the turbocharged 4-cylinder even consumes as much as Chevrolet's V6.

Verdict

In this head-to-head, the best choice for you is closely tied to your specific needs. If you're looking for power and towing capacity, you want a V6 Blazer, and if you do the RS is the model of choice, hands down. Otherwise, the Santa Fe is the best bet because of its more affordable starting price, longer warranty, better finishing and solid resale value.
