Technology & Safety

It's no secret that Edinboro SUV drivers need safety. These two models are competitive in the technology they offer, and the Honda CR-V certainly holds its own against the Hyundai Santa Fe. What the CR-V doesn't offer is standard features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. You'll need to pay more for the CR-V EX, while the Hyundai Santa Fe offers them standard, and for less money. A Heads-Up Display is something you won't find on the CR-V, while the Santa Fe offers this feature, plus an available Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate, heated steering wheel, and Wireless Phone Charger.

With the Honda CR-V, you do get a suite of safety features from the Honda Sensing® package. This suite offers Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keeping Assist. In the Hyundai Santa Fe, you can get standard Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist Detection, and Lane Keeping Assist. Picking one of these two-row SUVs near North East can be tough, especially when both are affordable and packed with features, but they differ in the performance arena as well.

Performance & Efficiency

The standard engine offered on the Hyundai Santa Fe is a 2.4-liter GDI engine with 185 horsepower and 29 mpg highway. The Honda CR-V near McKean can offer a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine with 179 pound-feet of torque. Both of these SUVs offer AWD, but you'll spend slightly more for one than the other. The Honda CR-V also offers 28 mpg city, and it doesn't offer another engine option. With the Hyundai SUV, you'll get an optional 2.0-liter engine that delivers 235 horsepower and up to 27 mpg highway. With generous fuel economy and performance specs, it's no wonder the Hyundai Santa Fe has continued to impress drivers for many years.
