2016 Honda CR-V vs. 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Honda CR-V, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
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 Honda CR-V 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. Both the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-V 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 Honda CR-V, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
The Honda CR-V has much lower torque than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Santa Fe, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-V has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Honda CR-V has less seating than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making the Hyundai Santa Fe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Honda CR-V has less cargo space than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda CR-V is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
