Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Ford Bronco, 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 Ford Bronco and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Bronco, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Ford Bronco is somewhat more expensive 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. The Destination Charge for the Ford Bronco is much higher than that for the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Dimensions
The Ford Bronco is a little wider than the Hyundai Santa Fe, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Ford Bronco, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Bronco will do just as well as the Hyundai Santa Fe, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Bronco and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Ford Bronco and the Hyundai Santa Fe are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

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