Taking a Look at the Advantages of a New Hyundai Santa Fe Sport from Coastal Hyundai in Melbourne FL
Affordability and value have always been strong selling points for new Hyundai models, but those affordability and value advantages have perhaps never been so stark as they are when comparing the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the 2018 Toyota 4Runner. That’s because the starting price for a new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is almost $10,000 less than the starting price for a new Toyota 4Runner. That lower starting price also includes far better warranties, as you can see in the table above.
So, what exactly are you getting with a 2018 4Runner for that extra $10,000? It certainly isn’t better gas mileage, as the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport gets up to 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon on the highway, while the 2018 Toyota 4Runner gets only 17 miles per gallon in the city and 22 miles per gallon on the highway. You are getting slightly more horsepower and torque, but it’s not by much. In fact, you probably won’t notice the difference while driving, whereas you’re definitely going to notice the difference in affordability, value and fuel efficiency in your wallet.
