Performance Perks: Ford Edge vs Hyundai Santa Fe

The 2017 Ford Edge offers a maximum of 315 horsepower, compared to the Hyundai Santa Fe's 290 horsepower. The Edge has an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency rating of 21 city/29 highway MPG, while the Santa Fe has a rating of 21 city/28 highway MPG.

Both SUVs come standard with front-wheel drive and can be upgraded to all-wheel drive for improved control on slippery winter road conditions. Both vehicles also offer a standard 6-speed automatic transmission. Plus, the Ford Edge offers a choice of two different engines, so you can opt for the power you need. Both the 2017 Edge and the Santa Fe have been lauded for their comfortable, sedan-like drive, despite their useful interior space that only comes with an SUV.

Interior Interest

Inside the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe, you'll find room for five on standard cloth upholstery. You'll be able to add leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, and more to either of the SUVs. The Ford Edge offers an optional 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat and 6-way power passenger seat to create the optimal comfortable position.

Ford's MyKey system can be used to set limits on speed and music volume for your teen driver, so you can enforce some rules even when you're not in the car. The 2017 Ford Edge also comes with the unique Curve Control system, which can detect when your vehicle is headed around a bend too quickly. If it detects this hazardous issue, it automatically adjusts the system to slow you down and maintain control.

Tech Features

Both models offer available driver-assisting safety features to help you avoid some of the most common causes of collisions on the road. You'll be able to add Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, the Lane Departure Warning System, and the Forward Collision Warning System to help you mitigate the risk of a crash.

Inside the SUVs, you'll find standard infotainment systems to keep you entertained during your commutes around Washington, Greenville, and New Bern. Bluetooth® connectivity and USB ports are standard on either model.
