Why do we love the Santa Fe Sport? Let us count the ways. Wait, there are too many. Well, we'll give you three instead: the 2016 Santa Fe Sport excels in the areas of engine power, technology, and safety, especially when compared to competitors like the 2016 Toyota Highlander. Just check out the details below for proof.

Power

With an epically powerful engine, the Santa Fe Sport gives you awesome horsepower and solid levels of fuel efficiency.

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport - In its base-line trim, the Santa Fe Sport is equipped with a 2.4L 4-Cylinder engine with Gasoline Direct Injection technology and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) that can produce as much as 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque, while also getting 21 mpg in the city, and 27 mpg on the highway.
  •  
  • The 2016 Toyota Highlander - The base-line Highlander trim features a 2.7L, 4-cylinder engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission system that can produce 185 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, but it can only give you 19 mpg in the city and around 25 mpg on the highway.

Safety

Second, the Santa Fe Sport comes equipped with a wealth of safety devices and systems to keep everyone as protected as can be hoped on the road:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport - The Santa Fe Sport also loads up on the safety devices, offering an Automatic Emergency Braking System with Pedestrian Detection, a Multi-view camera system, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert, and  Lane Change Assist, as well as many, many more.
  • The 2016 Toyota Highlander -  The Highlander comes with a Star Safety System, which gives you Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, and Brake Assist, but not quite the same multi-view camera as the Santa Fe Sport.

Technology

Finally, the Santa Fe Sport gives a spectrum of technologies to choose from.

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport -  SiriusXM Travel Link system keeps you abreast of developing travel and traffic information, while Android Auto enables instant connectivity and Smart Cruise Control keeps your cruising speed in line with the speeds of vehicles around you. Meanwhile, an Enhanced Blue Link center makes it possible for you to run web searches from the cabin of your car.
  • The 2016 Toyota Highlander - The Highlander comes with Entune Premium Audio,  Integrated Navigation, a set of USB ports, and a Rear-Seat Blu-Ray entertainment system, but not the same Android Auto system or Hyundai's particular Travel Link system.
