Hyundai vs Toyota Interior Space

If you plan on going on plenty of adventures in your new SUV, interior room is extremely important. You want to be able to fit up to 5 passengers comfortably while still leaving enough room for your belongings. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the long ride knowing the standard Hyundai Santa Fe comes with an abundance of interior room.

The inside of the Santa Fe offers an amazing 110.7 cubic feet of passenger room along with 71.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row and 35.9 cubic feet of space behind the second row.

If you don’t like riding in a vehicle where you feel tight and closed in, our Hyundai dealer is happy to report that the Santa Fe has plenty of headroom, legroom, and hip room. To be exact, the Santa Fe offers:

  • Headroom (Front/2nd Row):2 inches/39.2 inches
  • Legroom (Front/2nd Row): 44.1 inches/40.9 inches
  • Hip Room (Front/2nd Row): 57.5 inches/56.3 inches

Although the Toyota RAV4 is also a spacious option, its interior room can’t compete with the Hyundai Santa Fe. The RAV4 passengers won’t feel quite as relaxed knowing there is only 98.9 cubic feet of room for them, and only 69.8 cubic feet of cargo space between the first row, and 37.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row.

Also, the RAV4 offers 37.7 inches of headroom in the front row and 39.5 inches of headroom in the second row, 41 inches of legroom in the first row and 37.8 inches of legroom in the second row. As for hip room, the RAV4 offers 54.3 inches of room in the first row and 47.7 inches of room in the second row.

If you are looking for maximum space, based off the dimensions, the Hyundai Santa Fe is the better option of the two.

Santa Fe vs RAV4 Warranty

For your convenience and to keep your car running smoothly for years to come, a warranty is an important part of any vehicle. The Santa Fe standard trim level comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Not to mention, the SUV comes with a 7-year/unlimited mile corrosion perforation warranty to cover you in case of corrosion maintenance.

As for the RAV4, its standard SUV comes with a great warranty package, but for basic coverage, it only offers 3 years/36,000 miles. Its powertrain warranty is for 5 years/60,000 miles. Also, the RAV4 only offers a 5-year/unlimited mile corrosion warranty.
