2014 Honda CR-V vs. 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport than in the Honda CR-V, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 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 Sport, 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). Whether you pick the Honda CR-V or the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda CR-V will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-V is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Honda CR-V is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda CR-V doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Honda CR-V as you will in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

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