Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Buick Envision than the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Envision.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Envision as you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Envision will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Santa Fe. 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 Buick Envision and the Hyundai Santa Fe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Envision is about the same width as the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Buick Envision is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Buick Envision doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Handling
The Buick Envision has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Santa Fe, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Buick Envision for pulling heavy loads. The Buick Envision has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Envision and the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Buick Envision has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Envision is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
