2017 BMW X1 vs. 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X1 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

The BMW X1 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it more convenient to drive.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X1 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Santa Fe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW X1 is much higher than that for the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

With similar torque, the BMW X1 and the Hyundai Santa Fe are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

The BMW X1 has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Santa Fe, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X1 has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

The BMW X1 has less seating than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making the Hyundai Santa Fe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

The basic warranty of the BMW X1 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
