Efficiency and Performance
If efficiency without sacrificing power is a must, then the CR-V is likely your crossover of choice. Take a look at how the powertrains of each vehicle stack up:
- The CR-V offers a 2.4L 16-valve Direct Injection DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with a continuously variable transmission. The CR-V also incorporates several efficiency boosting innovations, like Earth Dreams Technology, Eco Assist, and ECON mode button, to achieve up to 8.6 city/6.9 highway liters per 100 km. The CR-V also offers Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control to give you maximum confidence in any driving situation.
- The Santa Fe Sport includes a 2.4L Theta II GDI engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The fuel economy comes in at 11.7 city/8.7 highway liters per 100 km.
One of the many advantages that the CR-V has over the Santa Fe Sport is price. The base price of the CR-V LX 2WD is $25,990 MSRP. Price jumps for the base model of the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe to $26,899 MSRP. With the Honda CR-V, you get more for your money.
The Honda CR-V has a variety of features that the Santa Fe Sport just can’t match. The CR-V comes with delay-off headlights. When the vehicle is powered down, the headlamps will automatically turn off after a preset time passes. The base model Santa Fe Sport does not offer this feature.
The CR-V also comes with:
- A low tire pressure warning
- Convex spotter mirror
These features are not found on the base model competitor from Hyundai.
