2017 Ford Edge vs 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Ford Edge vs Hyundai Santa Fe with Woody Folsom Ford of Baxley, GA

Although both the Ford Edge and the Hyundai Santa Fe are both incredibly similar mid-size crossovers, they do have their differences that set them apart. Both are great sized vehicles for those who are attracted to the spaciousness of the three-row crossovers, but need the manageability of the compact crossovers. 

The Edge has an athletic aesthetic, which translates to actual athleticism. For a precise, responsive, and overall smooth ride, driving the Edge is seamless, offering a direct and reassuring feel to the steering. The Ford also stands out in a subtle way with fuel economy factors, averaging out at 24 mpg combined, while the Hyundai Santa Fe is rated at 23 mpg.  


The Advantages of a Ford Edge Over a Hyundai Santa Fe

While the Hyundai Santa Fe paints a pretty picture in the fact that it has a nice price tag, the Ford Edge wins in all the categories that matter, such as aesthetics, power, and features. 

The Edge's major advantage to the Santa Fe is the fact that the Edge has an activated hands-free lift gate, has the most V6 horsepower in its class, and offers enhanced active park assist. One of our favorite technologies that we're excited to talk about is the enhanced active park assist. This is a technology that helps you steer into a parking space. 

The Edge also offers safety and engineering that is class exclusive, offering inflatable rear outboard safety belts. The Santa Fe doesn't offer any of these qualities. The Edge offers a look that's sporty yet formal. How is that possible? Well, with the athletic aesthetic and some great details that would look great in a sportscar, it makes you feel like you're in a sportscar turned crossover. The only way to truly understand what we're talking about here is if you test drive a Ford Edge for yourself. 

The Advantages of the Hyundai Santa Fe Over the Ford Edge

Although the Ford Edge wins in most categories, the Hyundai Santa Fe is voted as having more comfortable seating and slightly better safety ratings. That's not to say that the Edge lacks in safety ratings, as the differences between the Edge and the Santa Fe is minimal. Both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Ford Edge are incredibly similar crossovers, but when it comes to comparing price, quality, and modern features, the Ford Edge exceeds exponentially, leaving the Hyundai Santa Fe with a slight win in safety and comfort.
