The Hyundai Santa Fe and the Honda Passport are both excellent choices for drivers in Erie. If you are in the market for a new crossover, this might be a difficult choice to make. Let's take a side-by-side look at both of these popular models and see which one comes out the winner in the end.


First, let's take a look at performance. All trims of the Honda Passport come equipped with a 3.6-liter six-cylinder 9A engine that delivers upwards of 280-horsepower. With the Santa Fe, you have a choice of several different four-cylinder engines, including a turbo model. The base engine for the Santa Fe delivers 185-horsepower, but the Turbo model can deliver up to 235-horsepower. This is comparable to the six-cylinder engine on the Passport. Both vehicles offer a choice of front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.


When it comes to features and amenities, the Santa Fe wins. The Honda offers tri-zone climate control, but when it comes to technology, the Santa Fe has it beat. The Passport offers a five-inch LCD screen and Bluetooth HandsFree link. The Santa Fe offers a seven-inch display audio system and an eight-inch touchscreen navigation system. The Santa Fe also offers a premium audio system and the ability to connect to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for the ultimate connected experience in Fairview.


Safety is another important consideration when you are comparison shopping for a new vehicle near Edinboro. Both the Santa Fe and the Passport offer adaptive cruise control, but the Honda Passport's system only works at speeds above 20 miles-per-hour. This means that it is not much help in slow stop-and-go traffic in North East. The Santa Fe also has Smart Cruise Control with stop/start.
