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

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Honda CR-V. The Hyundai Santa Fe offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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 Honda CR-V, 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). 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. The Hyundai Santa Fe will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Santa Fe is much wider than the Honda CR-V, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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.
