2017 GMC Terrain vs. Hyundai Tucson

2017 GMC Terrain vs. Hyundai Tucson

Finding the perfect SUV can be difficult in 2017, now that tons of models are available on the market. The segment has been growing in popularity for a few years now, which means automakers are stepping up their game to ensure that they can please potential customers. GMC and Hyundai are no exceptions, and both have produced modern-day SUVs that drivers will love. While that may be true, one of those brands comes out on top. Check out our comparison of the GMC Terrain and Hyundai Tucson.

The difference begins with the pricing, and the GMC has a slightly higher price tag. Though that is true, you get more bang for your buck -- which is something we deem worth it. The first area where the 2017 Terrain shines is under the hood. It sports a 2.4-liter inline-four that's capable of producing a healthy 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers are above the 2017 Tucson's 162 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. Curious about the interiors? Keep reading!

Interior features and differences

GMC keeps your comfort in mind with premium cloth seating on the interior, while Hyundai offers run-of-the-mill cloth. Power seats are also standard inside the GMC model, and only an option (one that costs more) on the Hyundai model. In addition, the Terrain offers more cargo space. 

Cargo space in your SUV may be something that's important to you, which is another reason we love the GMC Terrain. When the seats are folded down, the model offers 31.6 cubic feet of area. This number is similar on the Hyundai Tucson, but when you fold the seats down, that changes. Once you fold the rear seating, the GMC Terrain opens up 63.9 cubic feet of space, which is a few more than the Tucson. If you choose the GMC, you won't have to leave those last few items behind.
