2015 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Hyundai Tucson, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
The Hyundai Santa Fe requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Tucson, 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). Clearly, the Hyundai Tucson is a better financial choice over the Hyundai Santa Fe, when considering MSRP. 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 Tucson and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Tucson is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Tucson, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
The Hyundai Tucson has much lower torque than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Tucson has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Hyundai Tucson has less seating than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making the Hyundai Santa Fe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Tucson has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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