2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2015 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport than in the Toyota RAV4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Toyota RAV4.

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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport or the Toyota RAV4, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Toyota RAV4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a little wider than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a little more horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

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 Toyota RAV4. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport as you will in the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport than that of the Toyota RAV4.
