2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2017 Hyundai Tucson Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Tucson. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, 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 Sport is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Tucson. 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 Sport and the Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a little wider than the Hyundai Tucson, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Hyundai Tucson. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Hyundai Tucson.

Warranty
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Tucson.
