2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2016 Acura MDX


2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

2016 Acura MDX


When looking for an SUV that excels in every way, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has everything that drivers in the Savannah region could want. Great pricing and mileage, standout performance, luxurious interior features, and the finest technology. Compared alongside the 2016 Acura MDX, it's definitely the winning car for family outings, daily commutes, and spontaneous adventures. But don't just take our word for it: Let's compare these two cars a little closer.  


Noteworthy Pricing  

There's a significant difference in pricing between the two SUVs that right from the start shows off the 2017 Santa Fe Sport's broad appeal and value. MSRPs are:

  • 2017 Santa Fe Sport FWD/AWD: $25,350/$27,100 
  • 2017 Santa Fe Sport 2.0T FWD/AWD: $31,700/$33,450 
  • 2017 Santa Fe Sport 2.0T Ultimate FWD/AWD: $36,500/$38,250 
Pricing for the 2016 Acura MDX is much higher even for the base models, and continues to rise with add-on packages:

  • 2016 Acura MDX: $43,015-$55,230 
  • 2016 Acura MDX with SH-AWD: $45,015-$57,230 

Great Performance and Mileage

A supercharged core and impressive fuel economy numbers add to the 2017 Santa Fe Sport's superiority over the Acura MDX:

  • 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: Both the 240-hp 2.0L engine with 260 lb. ft. torque and the 185-hp 2.4L engine with 178 lb. ft. torque GDI options deliver fantastic performance for the 2017 Santa Fe Sport.  Bolstered by six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and supported by downhill brake and hill start assist controls, it readily takes on all environments. Mileage is just as sweet, at EPA-estimated 20-21 city, 27-28 highway, and 23-24 combined for FWD trims, and 19-20 city, 24-26 highway, and 22 combined for AWD trims. 

  • 2016 Acura MDX: The 290-hp 3.5L engine with 267 lb. ft. torque doesn't provide enough oomph and dynamics that a vehicle of this class and size should.  Mileage also disappoints, with EPA-estimated 18-19 city, 26-27 highway, and 22-23 combined. 

Intuitive Features  

Little details add up, to highlight why the 2017 Santa Fe Sport always trumps the 2016 Acura MDX

  • 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: Drivers can rely on smooth navigation thanks to the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport's 185" length, 74" width, and 66.1" height, and 106.3" wheelbase. A terrific Dynamic Bending Light system adapts to every move, heated side mirrors are a driver's dream, and a wonderful Technology package includes a hands-free liftgate, the Infinity® stereo system with QuantumLogic® Surround and Clari-Fi Music Restoration. 

  • 2016 Acura MDX: Larger exterior dimensions through a 193.6" length, 77.2" width, 67.6" height, and 110" wheelbase make the 2016 Acura MDX more difficult to maneuver. The Acura/ELS Studio® option is not as sharp, and the Jewel Eye® lighting is not as comprehensive.
