When comparing the top engine options from both powertrain rosters, it becomes clear which SUV proves more capable at its peak potential. The new Hyundai Santa Fe features an available turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 235 horsepower and 260 pound-feet. In contrast, the RAV4 produces 219 horsepower and 163 pound-feet with its top XSE hybrid engine, falling well short of expectations when assessing the burst and overall explosiveness of both under-the-hood configurations.

Design Features


With standard aluminum wheels and automatic headlights, features not offered with the standard RAV4, the new Hyundai Santa Fe flashes on the move and brightens up the open road ahead in a confident manner. The outlook for this stylish journey is supported with a layer of reassurance from beginning to end, as this new Hyundai model comes with America's Best Warranty Coverage. With an extra five years and 40,000 miles of powertrain limited coverage over the RAV4 plan, a confident behind-the-wheel outlook always serves as the expectation.


The new Hyundai Santa Fe features over 10 extra cubic feet of cargo space than the Toyota RAV4 at 110.7 cubic feet. But how does this translate to your comfort inside? With greater leg, shoulder and hip room in both rows, relaxation comes easier. And with available convenience touches that include remote engine start, mirrors with memory function, leather seats and more - amenities not offered with the RAV4 - you and your guests will cherish the time you get to spend seated inside.


An available digital head-up display in the new Hyundai Santa Fe speaks to the sophistication in design you can expect when climbing in for departure. This visually intuitive platform allows you to project key vehicle details, music streaming and more onto your front windshield, an intuitive luxury for future travel that the new RAV4 fails to effectively counter.


The Hyundai Santa Fe proves its well-rounded craftsmanship and commitment to innovative influence on your drive is no mistake, topping the Toyota RAV4 in several relevant categories that matter for your prospective vehicle research. Experience this new Hyundai model from the driver's seat with a scheduled test drive today and don't hesitate to reach out for more information on what it can offer.
