2015 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2014 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Nissan Murano. The Nissan Murano will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
The Nissan Murano 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Santa Fe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Murano. 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 Nissan Murano have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is about the same width as the Nissan Murano. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Santa Fe takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Murano.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano.

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