Comparing the Hyundai Sante Fe to the Hyundai Tucson comes with two caveats: Both are exceptional SUVs and each are designed for a different type of driver.

Let’s take a look at how these Hyundai models differ from one another and determine which one is right for your lifestyle.

A Battle of the Hyundai SUVs

The SUV has evolved over the years from a one-size-fits-all response to a something-for-everyone solution.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today’s Sante Fe is built for suburban and rural drivers looking to fill a need for soccer practices, picnics, and recreation.

A longer body design results in considerably more cargo space than the Tucson along with seating for up to two additional passengers. The Santa Fe also packs in more infotainment features, which include a third-row USB port.

Under the hood, the Santa Fe boasts a powerful V6 engine that can generate up to 290 horsepower and 5,000 lbs. of towing capacity, making that weekend boating getaway a breeze.

2018 Hyundai Tucson

SUVs are no longer just for the suburbanites. The Hyundai Tucson gives city dwellers a practical and more compact option for enjoying all the perks of an SUV on tight city streets.

Shorter and narrower than the Santa Fe, the Tucson picks up better gas mileage than the Santa Fe and comes with a lower MSRP. The price tag isn’t the only thing about the Tucson that’s smaller. The compact design is ideal for street parking, narrow lanes, and other challenges of city driving that were once thought impossible in an SUV.

If your commute takes you in and around the city but you don’t want to be confined to a sedan, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson now on sale may be for you.

While these two SUVs are distinctly different, they do intersect in one pivotal area. Both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Tucson have received five-star safety ratings from the NHTSA thanks to features such as a Lane Departure Warning system, Automatic Emergency Braking system, rear parking sensors, and more.
