Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Acura RDX. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Acura RDX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe as you will with the Acura RDX, 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 Hyundai Santa Fe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura RDX. 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 Hyundai Santa Fe and the Acura RDX have similar Destination Charges.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is about the same width as the Acura RDX. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is slightly longer than the Acura RDX.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has a smaller turning radius than the Acura RDX, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a little more horsepower than the Acura RDX.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers greater seating capacity than the Acura RDX, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Acura RDX.
