The chart above sure indicates that the base Santa Fe comes with more than the base Highlander. The Santa Fe's base engine is much larger than that of the Highlander. Highlander drivers can have a V6 engine with 295 horsepower, but they will have to upgrade and pay about $2,000 more to do so. Santa Fe drivers, on the other hand, are guaranteed a six-cylinder engine with at least 290 horsepower and for less. Some other optional features available on the base 2018 Santa Fe include heated front seats, premium wood finish, side mirror turn signal indicators, and a hands-free liftgate.
