The Differences Are Undeniable
Hyundai Santa Fe

Both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Honda Pilot have a go-anywhere attitude, especially when outfitted with their available all-wheel drive systems. These drivetrains send the ideal amount of power to each wheel, so you can enjoy sure-footed control on every slick road or all-terrain trail.

How Do They Perform?

If you want to keep the fun going, you’ll need an efficient SUV. The 2022 Santa Fe has the advantage there. It boasts an EPA-estimated 25 city/28 highway MPG.1 Wave goodbye as you cruise past another gas station. The Honda Pilot only manages an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway MPG.

Interior Comfort & Convenience

Staying connected has never been quite so easy. In either model, you can keep in touch with the world, whether you’re way off the grid or right around the corner. They both come with the following infotainment features:

  • Bluetooth® hands-free phone system
  • HD Radio™
  • Android Auto™

The singalong is a pivotal part of any road trip. In the Santa Fe, the available Harman Kardon® Premium Audio system will put you up front at your very own concert venue with 12 speakers and QuantumLogic® Surround technology—Paul might start believing he can sing. Compare that to the Premium Audio System of the Pilot. It only has 10 speakers.
