While the new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV is quite impressive, is it the right vehicle for you? That’s where our friendly team at Butler Hyundai comes in. We're here to compare the specs, performance, and safety features of the new Santa Fe against one of it’s biggest competitors - The Toyota Highlander.
When you pick the new Santa Fe, you’ll picking the SUV that has your back in any situation. Thanks to the standard safety and performance features inside this exciting new SUV, you can now drive with more confidence than ever before. With a standard Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist system, your Santa Fe will uses sensors to monitor the surrounding area as you back out onto a busy road or parking lot, and alert you to any vehicles that may cross your path. It can even automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. Unfortunately, while the Highlander comes with an optional Cross-Traffic system, it is only on more expensive model options, and it doesn’t offer a prevention braking system. So if Highlander drivers aren’t paying attention, they could end up causing a collision. Other safety features found on the Santa Fe over the Highlander include a harder, more durable plastic fuel tank and a power child safety locking system.
And when it comes to vehicle handling, the Santa Fe stands out as it offers drivers front and rear gas-charged shocks. Now you’ll enjoy a more comfortable, smoother drive over rough roads. Other handling features the Santa Fe has over the Highlander will include the automatic load-leveling suspension that keeps your ride height level, even while towing a heavy load. The new Toyota Highlander’s cabin tends to sink and lift when pulling heavy trailers, resulting in dangerous driving situations.
