2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs 2017 Toyota RAV4
It’s difficult to say which vehicle has the most name recognition when it comes to the Hyundai lineup. Perhaps the Hyundai Sonata would be the first name to come to mind for most, but we think another option might be the Hyundai Santa Fe. However, did you know there’s more than one type of Santa Fe? We also offer an even sportier option, and we thought we’d show you just how great it is by comparing the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs 2017 Toyota RAV4.

Advantages of the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
We utilized the table above to show you precisely how these two compact crossovers compare to one another. As you can probably tell, each one has its clear advantages, though the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a couple more than its Toyota counterpart. The first row of the table however shows that the Santa Fe Sport offers an extra 9 horsepower more than the RAV4, which might not be a lot but should definitely give drivers a noticeable boost in power.
Unfortunately the RAV4 fires back with an advantage of its own in the next row, showing that it gets 3 extra miles to the gallon across highways and city streets combined. Once again, that might not sound like much but over time the RAV4 could probably save you a decent amount of money in fuel costs. But horsepower isn’t the only advantage that the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has.
The third row shows that the Hyundai crossover can haul an extra 500 pounds behind it, which will be nice for all those trips in which you need to tow a trailer along behind you. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll have an extra 3.1 cubic feet of space for you and all of your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in, which can definitely be important for any long road trips you might be planning.
