2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Hyundai Santa Fe offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Tiguan. 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

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

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Santa Fe greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe has less seating than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making the Volkswagen Tiguan the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
