Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid than in the BMW X2, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X2.

Performance

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X2 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid.
