2016 Honda Pilot vs. 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Honda Pilot than the Hyundai Santa Fe. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

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). The Honda Pilot is somewhat more expensive 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 Pilot and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Hyundai Santa Fe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Pilot takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda Pilot transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda Pilot will do just as well as the Hyundai Santa Fe, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda Pilot has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Honda Pilot offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Honda Pilot has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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