What Do You Get for the Price on the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe?

November 1st, 2014 by

HondaThe 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe is certainly one of the more popular crossovers on the road today, but if you’re shopping for a family vehicle, you may wonder just what it is that you get for the Santa Fe’s quite high price tag of $30,150 (MSRP), and we can’t blame you. Especially when a competing model like the 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD LX is priced starting at only $23,320 (MSRP).*

Let’s see what the differences are between these two models.

The CR-V Offers Drivers Savings

Okay, we’ve already compared the price of these two models, and if you’re wondering where that extra cost comes from on Hyundai’s model, we don’t have an answer for you. But we do know that the CR-V continues to rack up the savings when you factor in fuel economy:

  • The 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 34 mpg, bringing home 27 mpg in the city.**
  • The 2015 Santa Fe, on the other hand, only manages 25 highway mpg and 18 mpg in the city.

Those are savings that will add up quickly, and we don’t think that the extra horsepower found on the Santa Fe is enough to warrant such a large difference in the fuel economies; do you?

In addition to all of that, the Honda CR-V has one of the best selections of standard features in the crossover world, giving drivers access to Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and more without any need to upgrade! Honda is redefining the standard in “standard features,” and you reap the rewards!

While the Santa Fe does offer many similar amenities, the fact is that we can’t see why there’s such a substantial price difference; can you?
