2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2017 Ford Escape

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

2017 Ford Escape

When it comes to finding an SUV that suits the whole family and also delivers the power, entertainment, and safety that you need, there's little reason to look beyond the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Not only does the Santa Fe Sport give you a powerful drivetrain that pounds out huge rates of horsepower, but it also comes equipped with a grand array of cutting-edge technologies to keep everybody on board happy, while also guaranteeing your security on drives both long and short. But if you're still feeling uncertain, simply compare the new Santa Fe Sport to one of its arch-rivals, the 2017 Ford Escape, to see just how superior the new Hyundai is.


First of all, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport provides drivers with an impressively powerful drivetrain.

  • 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: With a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that features gasoline direct injection technology as well as dual continuously variable valve timing (D-CVVT), the Santa Fe Sport ensures drivers a wild 185 hp, while also giving you 178 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, you can look forward to 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. And you can exert unprecedented control over your drive with the Drive Mode Select system, which features three modes-Eco, Normal, and Sport-to generate exceptionally high efficiency rates.
  • 2017 Ford Escape: What does the Escape offer? A 2.5L iVCT engine that generates a measly 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.


Secondly, the Santa Fe Sport also boasts an exciting range of entertainment technologies. Get ready for a super-sophisticated drive, with SiriusXM Travel Link, which gives you all the latest travel information, as well as Android Auto, which allows you to connect your phone directly to your car's console. An Enhanced Blue Link device ensures constant connectivity, as well. Even if the 2017 Ford Escape does give you SiriusXM Satellite Radio and SYNC3 for connectivity, it has nothing like the Santa Fe Sport's Enhanced Blue Link.

Safety Devices

Last but not least, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport comes fully equipped with the very latest in sophisticated safety devices, too. Rear cross-traffic alerts? Check. A lane change assist system? Check. A multi-view camera system, an automatic emergency braking system with pedestrian detection, and blind spot detection? Check, check, and check again. And that's just the very tip of the iceberg when it comes to safety technologies in the new Santa Fe Sport. The 2017 Ford Escape has some solid new devices, too-curve control and torque vectoring control systems, for example-but nothing that compares to the Hyundai model's particular array of intelligent safety systems.
