2014 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Toyota Venza. The Hyundai Santa Fe offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza. 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 Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is a little narrower than the Toyota Venza, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Toyota Venza.

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 Toyota Venza.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Santa Fe greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza.

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