2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Comparison In Capitol Heights, MD
2015 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Chevy Equinox vs Ford Edge
With so many mid-size sport utility vehicles out there in the market these days, how do you know which one will satisfy your performance, comfort, and space need? Pohanka Hyundai of Capitol Heights has compiled a Capitol Heights, MD area 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe comparison to show you how the 2015 Santa Fe stacks up against the Chevy Equinox and Ford Edge when it comes to what you want in a brand-new SUV.
If you're looking for maximum power, the 2015 Hyundai gives you 290 horsepower, which beats both the Chevy Equinox and Ford Edge, and the 252 lbs-ft of torque is also higher than the Chevy Equinox. And this is all thanks to the 3.3L GDI V6 engine, which also features Driver Selectable Steering Mode, which allows you to choose between Comfort, Normal, and Sport mode to suit your driving needs. All this power comes in handy when you want to hook up some cargo to haul, as it has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, which easily tops the 1,500 pounds of the Chevy Equinox and the 3,500 pounds of the the Ford Edge.
Sometimes it's the comfort features that make all the difference when you're choosing a mid-size SUV, and the ability to upgrade it just a little bit more can be key. If you want a seemingly limitless music selection, SiriusXM Satellite Radio comes standard on the Santa Fe, but not on the Ford Edge. For your comfort, the 2015 Santa Fe gives you premium cloth seating surfaces, with the ability to upgrade to leather seating surfaces, and you'd need to upgrade to another Chevy Equinox or Ford Edge trim to get that.
The driver will be enjoying the comfort of a multi-adjustable power seat, which you won't find on the Edge, and you also get power-lumbar support that is Santa Fe exclusive. The 2015 Santa Fe is also the only model that has heated front seats as a standard option, which is a great luxury to have to those blustery winter days. The Santa Fe is also able to seat seven, thanks to the third-row split and folding bench seat, while the Chevy Equinox and Ford Edge can only seat five. And this means that the 2015 Santa Fe has the highest passenger volume, with 147 cubic feet of space.
If you want to further improve your driving experience with some very useful features, but not have to pay to upgrade to the next available trim, then the 2015 Santa Fe is the answer. If you're looking for an automatic or dual zone automatic climate control, you can add it. You can add some luxury to your SUV with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shift knob, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and navigation system, but you'd have to switch to an all-new trim if you wanted it on the 2015 Chevy Equinox or Ford Edge.
With some great performance and comfort features that come standard on the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe, and the ability to upgrade the interior without having to purchase another trim is also a key component as to why picking the Santa Fe is the right choice.
