2019 Hyundai Tucson vs Santa Fe

Hyundai has a full line of SUVs that are making a name for themselves on the streets of Downey, Anaheim, and Garden Grove for being stylish and reliable. However, because these models are so fully equipped, how do you know which one is right for you? Enter the team at Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos-we're here to help.

We have taken two of the most popular SUVs, and put them side by side in our 2019 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe comparison. This allows you to compare the features in each, so you can make a more educated decision. Let's jump right in!

2019 Tucson vs 2019 Santa Fe - Performance

As top picks for SUVs, both models come equipped with some pretty impressive components under the hood. Standardly, the Hyundai Tucson includes the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine which generates 161 HP and 150 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with the 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® technology to give you a solid estimated fuel efficiency of 23 city/30 highway/26 combined MPG.*

In the Hyundai Santa Fe, you'll receive more power, but this does come at a slight cost when it comes to miles per gallon. This SUV features the 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, generating 185 HP and 178 lb-ft of torque. And since an 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® is also included, it provides you with an estimated fuel economy of 22 city/29 highway/25 combined MPG.*

Hyundai Tucson vs Hyundai Santa Fe - Technology

When it comes to tech features that make your drives more fun and convenient, these Hyundai models have you covered. Both include a standard 7-inch display audio system, which allows you to access Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ with an 8-inch upgrade available. A wireless charger is also available in both SUVs, so there is no need of cords when powering up.

The 2019 Tucson and Santa Fe additionally include a rear-view monitor. However, in the 2019 Santa Fe, this comes equipped with parking guidelines. Also available is the surround view monitor, which allows you to see all around the vehicle, and is an optional feature in both SUVs.

Tucson vs Santa Fe - Interior Space

Although both vehicles have ample space for everyone in your group, as well as belongings, they are set up in different ways. In the Tucson, you'll have 102.0 cubic feet of passenger volume for up to five people. Additionally, the cargo space in the rear is also wide, coming in at 31 cubic feet with the seats upright and 61.9 cubic feet when folded down.
