The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe beats out its competition in several categories, from its high-performing engine, transmission, and unbeaten fuel economy, to its premium connectivity amenities and unmatched warranty coverage. The competition finds itself lacking in long-term fuel economy for the commute to and from Downers Grove, holding about 14-18 gallons of fuel and weighing a lot more than the Hyundai Santa Fe. The eight-speed automatic transmission of the Santa Fe provides more seamless and less noticeable gear shifts over the more clunky and imprecise continuously variable transmission of the CR-V and Rogue. In terms of driver assistance, The base trim level of the Ford Edge is lacking in many technological conveniences which are standard fare on all trims of the Hyundai Santa Fe. Such conveniences include Rear Cross-Traffic Assist, Smart Cruise Control, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto™ capability. When it comes to warranty coverage, the Hyundai brand provides a lot more for your money and offers a far more superior basic and powertrain limited warranty compared to its competitors.
