Crossover SUVs, also known as modern-day SUVs, are some of the most well-advanced automobiles in society today. These vehicles have a good amount of size, have plenty of seating room, are good-looking and are fuel-efficient. Hyundai has stepped up its game for 2019, and the all-new Santa Fe XL looks to be better than ever. Honda has been around for quite sometime, and the all-new Pilot is looking to maintain its rock-solid position on the market. Both of these vehicles would make a great choice if you're seeking a crossover SUV, but one of the vehicles tend to outshine the other in more ways than one.

Exterior Appearance

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL has a unique silhouette thanks to its long-flowing lines and crisp curves. This vehicle comes in multiple trim such as the SE and the Limited. There are beautiful projector headlights with LED accents. You'll find chrome door handles as well as a chrome-dual exhaust system underneath. Its roof rack has side rails and cross rails. Consumers can choose from a multitude of exterior colors, including circuit silver, java espresso, Monaco white and black.

The 2019 Honda Pilot is big and bold, especially for a crossover-styled SUV. This vehicle has plenty of trim levels to choose from, including the LX, the EX, the EX-L and the Touring. The shape of the front and rear LEDs are very nice, but the vehicle's front grille leaves a lot to be desired. The Honda Pilot is definitely more rugged than refined.


Advanced technology can be found everywhere in the 2019 Santa Fe XL. There are a number of apps to keep the driver, and his passengers occupied. This includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The vehicle's touchscreen display is very easy to use, and there's voice-activated controls. At just the push of a button, the front-seat cushions will provide warmth and cooling. This allows each passenger to control his or her own level of comfort. There's even a complimentary package for 3 years of Blue Link Connected Car services. For 360 degree sight, Hyundai has implemented a multi-view camera system.

Honda has implemented an in-car PA system. This allows for driver and rear-seat passenger conversation. The phone charger in the 2019 Pilot is wireless, and it provides hassle-free access for all. There's a beautiful touchscreen display that has built-in navigation. This system also has 3-D imaging. Thanks to HondaLink technology, drivers will be able to lock and unlock the doors via smartphone. If you need some internet service, there's an available hotspot zone.


Hyundai focuses more on driver-related safety by offering driver-assisted technologies such as Smart cruise control and Dynamic-Bending Light for the headlights. There's pedestrian detection as well as High Beam Assist. Honda focuses more on sensing for safety. There is an entire suite of advanced sensors that are embedded in its Lane Keep Assist system, its mitigation system, and its braking system.

Although Honda has many great features for entertainment and safety, it still falls short. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL is simply setting the tone for what a crossover SUV should be. Visit Pohanka Hyundai for a personal test drive.
