New Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. Nissan Pathfinder New Bern NC

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Offers the Most "Bang for Your Buck"

When comparing the 2017 Santa Fe Sport to Nissan's Pathfinder, it's easy to see why Hyundai comes out on top. With a lower starting MSRP, the Santa Fe Sport offers the optimal balance between comfort and class in the crossover SUV world.

The Santa Fe Sport offers a variety of standard features including cloth seats equipped with YES Essentials® stain-resistant material. Leather seats are available as well.

The Pathfinder only offers a limited selection of two interior colors, and it features many basic fabrics and plastic surfaces. When looking at the Santa Fe Sport, the trim options are versatile, with second-row seats having added flexibility by offering a 40/20/40 split-folding design.

Presenting a slimmer design and a smaller turning radius than the Pathfinder, the Santa Fe Sport offers a smooth driving experience with an efficient powertrain and minimal noise.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Takes the Lead in Safety

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's highest overall safety rating in 2016. With the arrival of the new 2017 Santa Fe Sport, Hyundai continues to deliver on its promise of keeping your family safe. Updated technology includes security features that go far beyond what the competition offers.

The new Santa Fe Sport is available with Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection - a feature lacking from the Nissan Pathfinder's spec sheet. Using a frontal camera and radar sensor, the Hyundai can come to a complete stop while traveling at speeds of 5 to 50 mph.

Looking at other safety features such as Smart Cruise Control, the Santa Fe Sport can detect when another vehicle is in your lane and adjust its speed accordingly. It will maintain a safe distance and can come to a complete stop if needed before resuming your desired speed. Without this feature, the Nissan Pathfinder can't hope to offer you the same level of convenience on the road.

Other available safety features on this Hyundai include:

  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Change Assist

The clear benefit of the Nissan Safety Shield® is a multi-tiered approach to the safety of you and your passengers. Other manufacturers just aren't as thorough.

The Santa Fe Sport also comes with Hyundai's unbeatable 10-year / 100,000-mile warranty. You can drive with peace of mind knowing that you are fully protected for a longer period of time.
