2014 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2015 Lincoln MKC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Lincoln MKC. The Lincoln MKC offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Hyundai Santa Fe requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKC, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Santa Fe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln MKC. 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 Lincoln MKC have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is a little wider than the Lincoln MKC, 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 Lincoln MKC.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Santa Fe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKC.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKC, 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 Lincoln MKC for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Lincoln MKC.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers greater seating capacity than the Lincoln MKC, 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 Lincoln MKC.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Lincoln MKC.
