Hyundai Santa Fe Interior vs Ford Edge | Littleton, CO

Interior Space and Design

Midsize SUVs provide just the right level of roominess without losing their aerodynamic feel and performance. This is especially true when talking about the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Ford Edge. Meticulously crafted to utilize every square inch, both deliver seating for up to five passengers along with plenty of cargo space.

While in the back seat, each SUV provides nearly identical headroom and legroom, front-seat passengers will really notice the difference in space. Offering 44.1 inches of legroom compared to the Edge’s 42.6 inches, the Santa Fe simply has more room to grow.

On the topic of growing spaces, the Santa Fe’s 60/40 power push-button fold-down rear seats effortlessly expand your useable cargo space up to 71.3 cubic feet. Got your hands full? Use the available hands-free smart liftgate with auto open and adjustable height setting and be about your day.

Hyundai Santa Fe Technology vs Ford Edge

Entertainment Technology

From shuttling the kids between after-school activities to packing up for a weekend in the mountains, each SUV finds creative ways to connect you to what you love.

For instance, both SUVs come standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ across each trim level. You’ll also find the Bluetooth® hands-free system to make streaming music and taking calls seamless.

To keep you fully charged for the long road ahead, the Santa Fe and the Edge also offer an available wireless device charging pad along with multiple power points.

One place where the Santa Fe pulls ahead is the 12-speaker Infinity® Premium Audio system with Quantum Logic® Surround and Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology. Now, your cabin can quickly transform into your favorite music venue no matter where you are on the map.

Hyundai Santa Fe Performance vs Ford Edge

Performance and Efficiency Specs

Sporty and agile, each SUV comes standardly equipped with a 4-cylinder engine and 8-speed automatic transmission. Drivers looking to add an extra dose of oomph to their commute can opt for the Santa Fe’s Turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Equally impressive is the Hyundai Santa Fe’s ability to start early and run all day without a fuel-up. When properly configured, drivers can expect up to an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway/25 combined MPG.*

By comparison, the Ford Edge comes close but can’t quite go the distance earning an EPA-estimated 21 city/29 highway/24 combined MPG.
