Comparison Review

Convenience

Cost

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Kia Sportage are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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.
