2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2016 Ford Edge

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

2016 Ford Edge

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is a stellar example of mid-size SUV style and handling. Turbocharged performance and practical seating configurations are amongst its distinctions, and its ample interior size creates plenty of space for kids, pets, market finds, bikes, water and winter gear, and whatever else will make up your excursions. When compared with the 2016 Ford Edge, Hyundai's top-class caliber shines.


The question for the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe's performance isn't what can it do, but what can't it handle:

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe: Powerhouse dynamics are at your fingertips in the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, just rev up the 290-hp 3.3L V6 D-CVVT GDI engine with 252 lb. ft. torque. The six-speed SHIFTRONIC® transmission with Active ECO System (Normal, Eco, and Sport modes) works in tandem with hill start assist, downhill brake controls, and active cornering control with all-wheel drive for an enhanced cruising machine. Additionally, the 5,000 pounds towing capacity is a strong plus for drivers to consider.

2016 Ford Edge: The twin-scroll 2.0L, and 2.7L and 3.5L V6 engine options for the 2016 Ford Edge fail to provide what drivers are looking for in an SUV. The AdvanceTrac® Roll Stability control and six-speed front-wheel drive transmission are disappointing, and maximum towing capacity falls short at 3,500 pounds.


Terrific lighting and ample room highlight the 2017 Santa Fe's appeal:

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe: LED fog lights, standard roof rack side rails, power liftgate with auto open, and optional extensive Dynamic Bending Light system greatly benefit commutes, errands, and longer road trips. This makes the Infiniti® stereo system with Quantum Logic® Surround and Clari-Fi technology all the more enjoyable to appreciate.

Second row 40/20/40 bench seating with cargo area releases, third row split-folding bench seating, and up to 80 cu. ft. cargo space make this one of the most comfortable rides ever for all occupants

2016 Ford Edge: The exterior lighting system and optional roof rack side rails do make a difference, when noting the 2016 Edge's usefulness. The 60/40 split-folding rear seating and 73.4 cu. ft. cargo space lessen storage options, and may affect how much can be packed for sports and leisure activities. Entertainment wise, the Sony® stereo system is simply just another blasé feature of this vehicle.
