The Hyundai Santa Fe vs. The Competition

A Closer Look at the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Next to the Competition

At Perry Hyundai in Nacogdoches, we're proud to be the local dealership that drivers turn to when they want the latest models and styles from the renowned Hyundai brand. Our collection is jam packed with topnotch Hyundai options that you can meet and test drive today, including the new, 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe.

A five-passenger SUV with plenty to offer any driver from Rusk, TX to Center, TX, the 2022 Santa Fe is one of the most popular models we carry. But we know that there are other two-row SUVs out there competing for your attention as well. To help you in your Hyundai research and shopping adventure, we've compared our Santa Fe next to three competing models. Read on to see how the Hyundai stacks up.

Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Toyota RAV4

  • Power and performance. Drivers like choices, and the Hyundai Santa Fe has them. Not only are there two hybrid alternatives available with our SUV, but it also gives you the choice between two responsive gas engines as well. These include a base 191-horsepower engine and an available, upgraded 281-horsepower system. Meanwhile, every Toyota RAV4 gets its power from one sole engine, meaning no options to upgrade if you want, and total maximum power for the Toyota is less than the Hyundai, topping out at 203 horsepower.
  • Groundbreaking EV option. Like the Honda CR-V comparison before this, the Toyota RAV4 also has a hybrid option for drivers to choose from, but no plug-in hybrid alternative. With its EV-only driving range of up to 31 miles, the Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid is efficient, powerful, and smooth. If you're looking for a plug-in SUV for your next set of wheels, the Santa Fe is the only one among the three compared here that you should consider.

Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Honda CR-V

  • Plug-in hybrid option. Electrified vehicles are more popular than ever these days, with more and more drivers choosing fully electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. With the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe, you have the option of getting the Hyundai quality you deserve, the Santa Fe design you need, with the plug-in hybrid capability you're looking for. Our Santa Fe is available with traditional gas power, hybrid power, and a cutting-edge, plug-in hybrid system that allows you to travel up to 31 miles on electric power. Comparatively, the Honda CR-V, while available with gas or hybrid power, doesn't offer a plug-in hybrid and has no models in its lineup with an EV range.
  • Passenger space and comfort. While both SUVs deliver five-passenger seating in two rows, the Santa Fe is more comfortable all around, for you and your passengers. You can look forward to extra inches of headroom, legroom, and elbow room in the Hyundai Santa Fe when compared to the Honda CR-V, especially in the front seat, where you'll get more than three added inches of legroom to stretch out in.

Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Nissan Murano

  • Hybrid alternatives. There are no hybrid options for the Nissan Murano if you're the type of driver who wants SUV style with the efficiency of a cutting-edge powertrain. With the Hyundai Santa Fe, there are several options available, including a gas engine, hybrid system, and plug-in hybrid option. The Nissan Murano is strictly powered by a gas V6 engine.
  • Cargo space. Whether it's groceries or camping gear, the Hyundai Santa Fe has more room for your important cargo than the Nissan Murano. With all seats in place, you can expect up to 36.4 cubic feet of space for cargo with the Santa Fe, while the Murano tops out at just 32 cubic feet.
