2014 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2014 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 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Santa Fe will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. Both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Volkswagen Tiguan have similar Destination Charges.

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. 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 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 a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 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 offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

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