2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2016 Nissan Pathfinder

 

2017 Hyundai Sante Fe

2016 Nissan Pathfinder

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is exactly the kind of strong, cozy, and impressive crossover that Savannah, Beaufort, and Hilton Head Island drivers are looking for. It has the performance, style, comfort, safety, and technology that keeps it top of its class, and shows how cars like the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder are nowhere comparable. This is the vehicle that makes every ride regardless of duration or purpose, a terrific and enjoyable driving experience. To be sure, let's compare it to the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder.  

High-Strength Performance 

The expectation of supercharged performance for an SUV shines through with the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. Its 290-hp 3.3L V6 D-CVVT GDI engine with 252 lb. ft. torque is complemented by FWD or active cornering control AWD, and six-speed SHIFTRONIC® transmission with Active ECO system. It's also supported by downhill brake control, and an extensive vehicle stability management system.  

The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder pales in power, with a 260-hp 3.5L engine with 240 lb. ft. torque and Xtronic CVT®. It has hill start, but its hill descent is only available for AWD.  

Streamlined Features 

Stylish details make all the difference, with the Santa Fe showing off how its appeal is stronger than that of the Pathfinder: 

  • 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe: An LED center high-mount stop light, HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light, and four 12V power points are distinctive for the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. Premium and Tech packages feature six-way power adjustable front passenger's seat, leather shift knob and steering wheel, front LED fog lights, and third-row USB port. 
  • 2016 Nissan Pathfinder: There are more cookie cutter features for the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder, and less premium enhancements from the available packages. Heated exterior mirrors, delay-off headlamps, voice activated audio control, speed sensing volume, found in the Santa Fe, are not in the base trim. 

Top-Notch Technology and Safety 

The Multi-View 360° camera system that places coverage on the front grille, side mirrors, and rearview set-up is one of the technological pluses for the Santa Fe. Other benefits include an LCD touchscreen with HD Radio, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, and Blue Link® and Android Auto integrations, and an Infiniti® system with Quantum Logic® and Clari-Fi™. Safety wise, there's also a greater range of assistive features than there are in the Pathfinder. Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, smart cruise control, lane change assist, high beam assist, and electronic brake assist with automatic vehicle hold are the perfect accompaniments to a comprehensive air bag and rollover sensor system.  Nissan's traction and dynamic controls are not as vastly complemented.
