Hyundai Santa Fe vs Ford Fusion


If you're in the market for your next car, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe and Ford Fusion both offer plenty of features for Hardeeville, Hilton Head Island, and Bluffton motorists. At Peacock Hyundai Hilton Head, our goal is to make the car-buying process easier for you.

That's why we've put together this comparison of the Santa Fe and Fusion, taking a closer look at the features and measurements that matter to drivers. It all begins with what's under the hood, so let's start by taking a look at each vehicle's performance specs.

Santa Fe vs Fusion Performance

The 3.3L V6 engine in the Santa Fe is capable of producing 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque for a truly authoritative drive. If you do a lot of driving on the highways, this is the right car to have on your side. However, it's also athletic and sporty enough to handle urban streets and tight turns, too.

You'll also be able to use the steering wheel to your advantage in the 2019 Santa Fe. Some drivers might like a bit of more steering effort. Other drivers like to have the car handle a bit easier. Use Drive Mode Select to adjust the steering to your liking.

The 2019 Ford Fusion has engine choices, but the base engine is a 4-cylinder, which only produces 175 horsepower. That doesn't quite match up to the power offered in the Santa Fe.

Inside the Cabin

If room is what you desire, then the Santa Fe might be the car for you. With passenger volume of nearly 147 cubic feet, there's plenty of space for passengers. The Ford Fusion, on the other hand, offers around 103 cubic feet of space for passengers.

The Hyundai Santa Fe bests the Fusion when it comes to front headroom, rear legroom, and rear headroom, as well. Overall, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe has more space for passengers and cargo. Use the split-folding 3rd-row bench seat in the Santa Fe for that precious cargo you're carrying along for the ride. You won't find a third row in the Fusion, so this isn't an option.

Tech Features

Technology is always helpful, whether we're using it at home or in our vehicles. The Santa Fe and Fusion are here to help with the latter thanks to the standard rearview camera each model is equipped with. When backing up, just take a quick look in the center stack on the touchscreen and you'll be able to see what's going on behind the vehicle.

The 2019 Santa Fe also comes with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Link up a compatible smartphone to the touchscreen, and then select a song, read text messages, or use navigation features, all through the touchscreen. The Ford Fusion does have this feature, but it doesn't come standard as it does in the 2019 Santa Fe.

Hyundai Santa Fe vs Ford Fusion: The Last Word

If you're looking for a car that has abundant cargo and passenger space, helpful tech features, and strong performance, look no further than the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe.
