Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe as you will with the Mazda CX-5, 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Santa Fe or the Mazda CX-5, 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 and the Mazda CX-5 have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Hyundai Santa Fe will do just as well as the Mazda CX-5, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Mazda CX-5.
