New Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs New Honda Pilot New Bern NC

2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Offers Fullsize Value at Midsize Price

Instead of trying to decide between a midsize crossover and a fullsize crossover, it helps to be more specific. Try deciding between a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and a 2016 Honda Pilot instead. That's much easier.

It's easy because the Santa Fe Sport offers comparable performance to the Pilot with smaller engines and a major pricing advantage. The Hyundai also has a NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating and the winner of KBB's 5-Year Cost to Own Award. From a driving and ownership standpoint, the Santa Fe Sport has an edge.

Your decision might have to come down to which car better serves  your passengers. The Pilot has three rows, so if you have a larger crew, you might have to look at the Honda (but don't forget to look at the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe first).

Meanwhile the Santa Fe Sport capitalizes on convenience. The second row folds flat to give you 71.5 cubic feet of cargo space, and this vehicle is available with Hyundai's Hands-free Smart Liftgate. Just approach the trunk with the key fob on your person and it will open automatically, no funky motions or gestures necessary.

America's Best Warranty Seals the Deal for the Santa Fe Sport

One area that the new Santa Fe Sport has a clear advantage over any Honda model is the warranty. Hyundai continues to offer America's best powertrain warranty. 10 years or 100,000 miles of coverage is nearly double what you'll get from competitors, and even Hyundai's basic warranty surpasses what you get from Honda.
