The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. the 2016 Honda CR-V

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

2016 Honda CR-V


With the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, the question is not what makes this car so spectacularly awesome, but rather where do we begin? Here's a start: the Santa Fe provides drivers with a powerful drivetrain and performance system, ensuring that you get solid horsepower and high levels of fuel efficiency. At the same time, the Santa Fe offers up enough space for all passengers as well as cargo and other luggage. Finally, the Santa Fe promises a wealth of entertainment technologies to keep you and your passengers engaged throughout the drive. To see just how stellar this car is, though, simply compare it to the 2016 Honda CR-V, one of its rivals. 

Performance and Power 

First off, let's talk power. The Santa Fe has ample engine power but also guarantees you strong rates of fuel efficiency as well. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - Each of the Santa Fe trims features a 3.3L V6 engine that can generate 290 hp as well as 252 lb-ft of torque, while also being capable of towing 5,000 lbs. At the same time, the Santa Fe comes equipped with a Drive Mode Select system, giving you three different driving modes-ECO, Sport, or Normal-which allow you to choose the right mode for the right condition. 

  • The 2016 Honda CR-V - Each CR-Z trims runs on an In-Line 4-Cylinder 16-Valve SOHC i-VTEX engine that can only produce a measly 130 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque when combined with 6MT. Not much to compare, really. 

Interior Space 

Second, the Santa Fe also comes with enough space to keep everyone of your passengers comfortable. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - The Santa Fe offers seating for 6-7 passengers as well as 146.6 cubic feet of total passenger volume and 80 cubic feet of cargo volume, meaning that you'll have ample space to stuff your luggage and other cargo in. 

  • The 2016 Honda CR-V - Just as with power, the CR-V falls tragically short in this area: it gives you seating for five and 25.1 cubic feet of cargo room. 

Entertainment Technologies 

Lastly, the Santa Fe gives you enough audio technologies to keep the music bumping throughout the drive. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - For example, the Santa Fe's Android Auto system lets you plug your smartphone into your Santa Fe, enabling you to access your own music, while its Clari-Fi technology ensures that sound quality is top-notch. But you'll also be able to rely on streaming internet radio stations like HD Radio Technology and a SiriusXM Satellite Radio for more choices. 

  • The 2016 Honda CR-V - The CR-V gives you Bluetooth and a 7-inch Display Audio System, but absolutely nothing like Clari-Fi or the Santa Fe's other perks.
