2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2016 Ford Escape

Choosing the right crossover for you and your family can often be a tedious decision, especially with so many great options like the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the 2016 Ford Escape. Hagerstown and Chambersburg drivers will enjoy the fact that both of these crossovers feature strong powertrains and a lot of enviable interior features. We think that most will agree that the 2016 Santa Fe Sport is the superior choice - keep reading to learn why.

Strong Powertrain

The 2016 Ford Escape has three engine options to choose from:

  • 2.5L 4-cylinder
  • 1.6L EcoBoost
  • 2.0L EcoBoost.

The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder will see Hagerstown and Chambersburg drivers getting 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, while the 2.0L engine will deliver 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.

While the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport only offers two engine choices, both options will deliver more power than any of the Escape's engines.

  • The standard engine on the Santa Fe Sport is a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that produces 190 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
  • The more advanced engine is a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder that will deliver a whopping 265 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque - significantly more than the Escape's 2.0L engine.

Additionally, if you're looking for the best vehicle for towing, then the 2016 Santa Fe Sport is the crossover to choose with its 2.0L Turbocharged engine that will allow you to tow up to 3,500 pounds. The 2016 Escape's 2.0L engine will only tow up to 2,000 pounds with the standard equipment.

Interior Features

Both models have been fitted with convenience features that can make every journey more enjoyable. The 2016 Escape and the 2016 Santa Fe Sport both come standard with Bluetooth, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with 6 speakers, and an auxiliary input jack. Hagerstown and Chambersburg car shoppers will be happy to know that, in addition to these technologies, the following features are standard on the Santa Fe Sport but not on the Escape:

  • SiriusXM with 3-month subscription
  • Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM)
  • YES Essentials stain-resistant cloth seating surfaces
  • 40/20/40-split folding second-row bench seat
