2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2017 Kia Sportage

The Kia brand has been growing steadily in recent years, and has been producing impressive award winning vehicles including the Kia Sportage. This might seem like a good bet if you are in the market for an SUV, but it would be worthwhile to pay some attention to the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. If you go through the facts, you will find that the 2017 Kia Sportage pales in comparison to the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe in many aspects, and is therefore the ideal vehicle for you to get.

Design & Style

One of the problems with the previous iterations of the Kia Sportage was the fact that it looked extremely bland. The 2017 version has received a facelift to try and correct this. However, it hasn’t entirely worked, since the vehicle still looks like any other car on the road despite having improved looks compared to its predecessors. It’s simply not a head-turner. Changes to the interior are more successful, as the car has a more premium feel than before thanks to better build quality.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, on the other hand, has an exterior design that makes it stand out. It is a car that will definitely get you noticed, with its stylish but understated look. The Hyundai’s interior is also award-winning, with the excellent combination of high quality workmanship and quality materials to come up with an interior that feels luxurious.

Technology & Safety

The 2017 Kia Sportage has many tech features as you would expect from a car manufactured in this era, but it does not match what the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe has to offer. Tech features in the Kia include a 300 watt 6 speaker audio system, Bluetooth capability and cruise control. For safety, standard features include ABS and traction control.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, on the other hand, has a more impressive array of tech features on offer. Some of these include Apple CarPlay support, Android Auto, a hands-free smart trunk function and smart cruise control with start-stop.

Performance

The Kia Sportage has a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine producing 181 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque at 2,500 rpm. As with most cars, this is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.

The base 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe ships with a 3.3-liter 6-cylinder engine generating 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. This gives the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe better straight-line acceleration and speed. The suspension setup in the Hyundai also makes it handle better in the corners as well.

The Bottom Line

While the Kia Sportage has been an icon, the fact of the matter is that the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is a much better car. Whether you are single, have a family or require specific driving dynamics from your vehicle, you will find that the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is more capable in satisfying your demands.
