    2017 Santa Fe Sport vs. 2017 Santa Fe XL

    The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe for sale in the Eastern Townships  is a high-quality mid-sized SUV. As powerful as you could ever wish for and extremely affordable, it is available in two models at Hyundai Granby, dealership near Magog, Cowansville and Saint-Hyacinthe: the 2017 Santa Fe Sport and the 2017 Santa Fe XL. Since each offers its own unique features, Hyundai Granby decided to compare the two to help you make an informed decision.

    A dynamic look or a fierce frame?

    With its aggressive lines, the 2017 Santa Fe sport version seems a little more aerodynamic than the XL model, which, for its part, seems more imposing. Other than their difference in length, their dimensions are more or less the same: around 1 888mm wide and 1 700mm high. However, the Santa Fe Sport is lighter, weighing 1 711 kg while the XL weighs more than 1 790 kg.


    Strength vs. Fuel economy

    The advantage of the Sport’s 4-cylinder engine is that it is very fuel efficient, consuming only 11.1 L/100km in the city and 8.6 L/100km on the highway. On the other hand, the motorization of the XL version is a bit greedier as it guzzles around 12.9 L/100km in the city and 9.4 L/100km on the roads. And we can’t forget that the Santa Fe Sport is a greener choice since its CO2 emissions were measured at 4 589kg/year (compared to 5 210 kg for the XL).

    However, the 2017 Santa Fe XL is the most powerful of the two, offering a towing capacity of 2 268kg. For its part, the 2017 Santa Fe Sport can’t tow more than 909 kg. If you want to drive in the city, opt for the first, but, if you appreciate going off the beaten path, the second is the one for you.

    Whether you choose the 2017 Santa Fe Sport or the 2017 Santa Fe XL near Cowansville, Magog, and Saint-Hyacinthe, you will come out a winner in the end. The choice you make must, therefore, be made depending on the style of driving you prefer as well as the lifestyle you lead.
