  • For starters, the Santa Fe is a three-row SUV with seating for up to seven, compared to the smaller Santa Fe Sport, which only has a lone rear seat and fits five. As such, the interior dimensions in the Santa Fe are considerably larger than what the Santa Fe Sport offers.
  • While the Santa Fe Sport offers two four-cylinder engine options - with the more powerful of the two being a turbocharged setup - the Santa Fe is more powerful with its lone V-6 setup.
  • As you'd expect, the Santa Fe Sport is more efficient than its larger counterpart, making the smaller of the two the understandably better option if you'll be commuting daily in your next Hyundai crossover.
  • Understandably, the larger, more powerful Santa Fe will run a higher price than the smaller Santa Fe Sport. While your needs for an SUV be the most important factors for making your decision, keeping in mind the costs is recommended as well.
