Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Nissan Murano. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan Murano.

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 Nissan Murano, 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 Hyundai Santa Fe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Murano. 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 Nissan Murano have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Murano.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

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 Nissan Murano. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Murano.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Nissan Murano.
