We have compared the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs 2017 Ford Escape in Fredericksburg, VA, so you can see how these two crossovers measure up to one another, and what makes the unique and well-equipped Hyundai Santa Fe Sport stand out!

You’ll be able to fit the kids’ school projects, your workout gear, and any other of your daily necessities inside the commodious 2017 Santa Fe Sport. Offering 35.4 cu. ft. of cargo volume behind the second row, there is plenty of room for even your bulkiest of items in the back. Ideal for your weekend trips to Colonial Beach, you can fit all of your coolers, umbrellas, and sporting gear with this kind of space. With all the seats in place, you may have to leave a few of your essentials behind when you drive 2017 Escape, since it only gives you 34 cu. ft. of cargo space. Fold the 40/20/40 split-folding second-row bench to create even more volume in your Santa Fe Sport, which provides 71.5 cu. ft. of cargo space. The Escape’s maximum cargo room of 68 cu. ft. just can’t compete with the versatile Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Both crossovers provide you with a sturdy and reliable engine, but the Santa Fe Sport continues its winning streak when it comes to performance as well in our 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs 2017 Ford Escape in Fredericksburg, VA, comparison. Boasting a 2.4L 4-cylinder base powerhouse, the 2017 Santa Fe Sport is able to crank out a staggering 190 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2017 Escape’s 2.5L 4-cylinder base powertrain, although works hard, can’t match the Santa Fe Sport’s high numbers with its 168 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. You can haul heavy equipment like your camper, boat, or jet skis with the Santa Fe Sport’s base engine’s 2,000-lb. towing capacity, whereas the Escape can only manage to offer a 1,500-lb. towing capability1 when you choose its base engine.

Technology-wise, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport outdoes the Ford Escape in countless ways. You won’t be able to find innovative phone integration like Android Auto™2 and Apple CarPlay™3 offered in the 2017 Escape. The Santa Fe Sport gives you both of these as options, which allows you to connect to your favorite smartphone applications via voice command, so you can multitask without having to take your eyes off of the road for one second. The Ford Escape also doesn’t feature the 12-speaker Infinity® Premium Audio System with QuantumLogic® and Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology, which is included on higher trims of the 2017 Santa Fe Sport.

The conveniences continue inside the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Offering YES Essentials ®4 stain-resistant seats, which is exclusive to Hyundai models, you can keep your cabin nice and clean, even if you spill some coffee on the side of your seat while heading into work. The Ford Escape doesn’t include Blue Link®5, which is available in the Hyundai Santa Fe, and works through your smartphone to set up Remote Start and Google™ Destination Search.

It was a close race to the finish line, but the 2017 Santa Fe Sport triumphs in this 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs 2017 Ford Escape in Fredericksburg, VA, comparison! Test drive this outstanding crossover at Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg today. We look forward to your visit!
