2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2017 Kia Sportage Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Sportage, 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). The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Sportage. 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 Kia Sportage have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a little wider than the Kia Sportage, 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 Kia Sportage.

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 Kia Sportage.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a larger turning radius than the Kia Sportage, 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 Kia Sportage for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a little more horsepower than the Kia Sportage.

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 Kia Sportage. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Sportage.
