2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2014 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mazda CX-5, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Mazda CX-5.

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 Mazda CX-5, 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 Mazda CX-5. 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 Sport will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is much wider than the Mazda CX-5, 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 Sport, which is slightly longer than the Mazda CX-5.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Mazda CX-5 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda CX-5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport will do just as well as the Mazda CX-5, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a little more horsepower than the Mazda CX-5.

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 Mazda CX-5. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport than that of the Mazda CX-5.
