Just last year, the Hyundai Santa Fe got completely overhauled as it was taken into the nameplate’s fourth generation. With a fresh, sophisticated design and plenty of great new features and tech throughout, the next-gen Santa Fe has made a great option in the midsize crossover segment. Now in its sophomore year, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe continues to improve its value by moving certain features around. We thought we’d see how the vehicle measures up to one of its biggest segment rivals, so we pit the 2020 Santa Fe against the 2020 Honda Passport.
As you can see from the table above, the two crossovers are quite similar to one another, but each has its clear advantages. Right out of the gate in the first row, the Hyundai Santa Fe takes a lead by achieving an extra 2 miles per gallon through the city, That advantage is heightened even more so in the second row, which showcases the extra 7 mpg the Santa Fe gets on the highway. That’s going to lead to quite a bit of savings at the gas station in the long run.
The third row is where the Honda Passport turns things around in a big way, by generating an extra 95 horsepower more than the Santa Fe. However, this advantage is cut down a bit by the final row, which shows that the Santa Fe actually weighs 368 pounds less than the Passport, meaning it doesn’t need quite as much power. That’s still not a big enough difference to make much of an impact on the Passport crossover’s huge power advantage.
So, in terms of specifications, this comparison comes down to efficiency versus power. However, there is plenty more to these vehicles than just those two aspects. The Hyundai Santa Fe, of course, delivers America’s Best Warranty as well as a host of great features thanks to Owner Assurance, including 3-years of complimentary service.
