Which crossover SUV is right for you? That really all depends on what you intend to use it for! Do you need to haul more cargo and passengers on a regular basis? Or do you have a smaller family and are squeezed for space in your garage? Learn the difference between the Hyundai Santa Fe and the slightly smaller Santa Fe Sport and what version is right for you in the comparison below:
Hyundai Santa Fe vs Santa Fe Sport
The 190 horsepower 2.4L GDI 4-cylinder engine of the Santa Fe Sport supplies slightly less power than the regular Santa Fe. However, it achieves a bit better fuel economy, rated at up to 27 MPG HW. If you desire more capability, upgrade to the Santa Fe 2.0T to pump out an exhilarating 264 horsepower.
With seating up to seven, the Hyundai Santa Fe can take more passengers along for the ride. Furthermore, the Santa Fe’s seats can be stowed to make the most of its total interior volume of 160 cu. ft., which is greater than the Toyota Highlander, Dodge Durango and Mazda CX-9.
If you have a smaller family, the Santa Fe Sport might be a better match for you. Comfortably seat up to five in the Santa Fe Sport. Plus, there is 71.5 cu. ft. of cargo space at your disposal with the second row of seats folded down, which is more than the Toyota Venza, Ford Edge and Honda CR-V.
Since the Santa Fe is equipped to haul more passengers than the Sport version, it is longer, 193.1 inches in length to be exact. However, it is only slightly wider than the Santa Fe Sport, measuring 74.2 inches in width.
The Santa Fe Sport looks nearly identical to the original Santa Fe, it’s just a bit smaller. The Sport version is just about ten inches shorter than regular Santa Fe, coming in at 184.6 inches in length. It’s nearly the same width though, measuring 74 inches across.
