2018 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2018 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Honda CR-V, with comparable head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V 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 Hyundai Santa Fe will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda CR-V, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Honda CR-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is a little wider than the Honda CR-V, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Hyundai Santa Fe, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda CR-V.

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

Performance
When considering 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 Hyundai Santa Fe greatly out-muscles the Honda CR-V.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Honda CR-V.
