2020 Chevrolet Blazer vs Hyundai Santa Fe

The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer and 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe are two midsize SUVs that are competitive, and worth comparing in the midsize SUV market. They offer customers similar packages, but the Chevrolet Blazer’s bold, stylish design and engaging drive is hard to pass up.

Design

The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer’s bold, sophisticated design with spacious seating and cargo space makes this SUV fun to drive. With 2 rows of passenger seating, it seats up to 5 people comfortably with plenty of head and leg-room and a decent amount of cargo space. Behind the rear seating, there is 30.5 cubic feet of space and folding down the back row expands the capacity to 63.2 cubic feet. The Blazer’s Camaro-inspired design fits its cabin, with circular air vents, a hexagon-shaped infotainment system, and available red accents.

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe seats five people comfortably in two rows and provides a good amount of cargo space, with 35.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 71.3 cubic feet with the back seat folded down. The Santa Fe offers plenty of quality interior materials and reclining rear seats, but doesn’t sport that stand-out design of the Blazer.

Tech features

The Blazer’s graphics on its 8-inch touch screen are crisp and easy to see. It also has a handy shortcut bar and responsive touch controls. It comes standard with the easy to use Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system with Android auto, Apple CarPlay, four USB ports, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a six-speaker audio system. The Blazer’s standard safety features include a rearview camera and a rear-seat reminder. Among several available safety features are lane keep assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring and safety alert seat.

The Santa Fe offers a 7-inch display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and four USB ports. Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection and lane keep assist. Available safety features include rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and surround-view parking camera.

Price and Engine

The base 2020 Chevrolet Blazer L starts at $28,800, and the top-of-the-line Premier trim starts at $42,700. All-wheel drive costs an additional $2,000 to $2,900, depending on the trim. The Blazer’s base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 193 hp, but if you want more power, there’s a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 230 horsepower or a top-of-the-line 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 that packs a punch. It delivers a 21/27 mpg city and highway rating. 

The Santa Fe has an underwhelming engine and isn’t the quickest or crossover in its class. It is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine or a 235 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. Both pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard front- or optional all-wheel drive. Acceleration isn’t particularly quick, but it is sufficient to drive around town and on the highway. It estimates 22/29 mpg in the city and on the highway. The Santa Fe base SE trim starts out at $26,125 and ranges to a starting price of $35,875 for the Limited.
