2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. the 2017 Toyota Highlander

Looking for the perfect SUV to get you and your family around Hagerstown? You might be trying to decide between the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2017 Highlander for your Winchester off-roading vehicle next year. Which of these vehicles will provide the features and power you need? Check it out today with this guide from Massey Hyundai.


The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe features a powerful 3.3L V6 engine, which uses gasoline direct injection for more power when you need it. It produces an incredible 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, using a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® technology and an active eco system to get up to an impressive 25 mpg highway.

The 2017 Toyota Highlander will feature a new 3.5L V6 engine that uses direct fuel injection, as well as a direct shift automatic transmission that's more compact and is said to provide more transmission efficiency. However, the total power generated and the fuel efficiency on this base engine for the new Highlander hasn't been certified by the EPA yet, so all we have to go on is Toyota's word that the engine will be superior to last year's model.

Design and Features

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe features a sleek, friendly look that's perfect for toting your family around and will be your companion even when you're on vacation. Unique features like dynamic bending light let the headlamps move with your steering wheel for perfect visibility that's easy and simple, while technological features like the Honda Blue Link system let you connect with your friends and family or get emergency help easily at any time.

The 2017 Toyota Highlander might have had a facelift, but it retains the chunky, aggressive style and the utilitarian fascia with an uninspiring black grille. You'll be able to choose between an eight-passenger seating system with smaller, cramped seats, or roomier seats for the second row that eliminate space for an eighth passenger. Toyota is finally catching up by adding driver safety technologies like a lane departure alert, pedestrian pre-collision system, and dynamic radar cruise control, but these driver awareness systems are only available as a pricey add-on bundle.
