2022 Hyundai Santa Fe vs 2021 Ford Edge

Embarking on a car search puts many different models on the table, like the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2021 Ford Edge. For Vernon, Manchester, and Hartford, Connecticut, shoppers, you may need expert advice on which one to choose.

Key Hyundai of Manchester knows that and has provided a quick comparison below, so you can feel informed enough to make a wise decision.

Hyundai Santa Fe Interior Space

Hyundai Santa Fe vs Ford Edge Interior

Inside the cabin of each SUV, you’ll find diverse materials to furnish your seats.

In the Hyundai Santa Fe, start out with stain-resistant cloth seating. You can upgrade to either deluxe leather appointments or quilted premium Nappa leather seating surfaces. The Ford gives you cloth seating standard and expands to available leather-trimmed sport bucket seats.

So, if you like a sleek, designer look, the Santa Fe may be more to your taste.

Sitting in the front of your vehicle, you want to feel comfortable, with the ability to stretch out. Here’s what you can expect from both the Santa Fe and the Edge, according to their dimensions:

Front Row Hyundai Santa Fe Ford Edge
Headroom 41.2 inches 40.2 inches
Hip Room 57.5 inches 55.9 inches
Legroom 44.1 inches 42.6 inches

You’ll also enjoy more rear-seat legroom in the Hyundai. It sports 41.7 inches of space, while the Ford stops at 40.6 inches

Hyundai Santa Fe with Apple CarPlay® Technology

Hyundai Santa Fe vs Ford Edge Technology

On-board technology can make every trip easier—from start to finish. Both cars accommodate your smartphone by offering Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, so you don’t have to go without your apps. To keep an organized cabin, the Hyundai offers you both a standard wireless version or an available wired version of both. Only a wired version comes in the Ford.

While you’re driving to wherever you’re headed, it would be nice to know that your phone won’t need to be charged. No battery drain occurs in either SUV thanks to their wireless device-charging systems. Nearly every trim except one in the Santa Fe includes wireless device charging. Only three trims offer a wireless charging pad in the Edge.

Hyundai Santa Fe Safety

Hyundai Santa Fe vs Ford Edge Safety

Innovative—that’s how you describe the Hyundai SmartSense systems found in the Santa Fe. What other car lets you use your key fob to remotely park your car? The available Remote Smart Parking Assist expertly maneuvers your car without you having to sit inside it, sweating it out.

You’ll also get added warnings, with the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection. This feature will caution you about cyclists in your path through the Cyclist Detection device.

When driving the Ford, it does offers Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking but no specialized system for monitoring cyclists. You can add Enhanced Active Park Assist™ to help you park your car but you still have to sit inside it. The Ford is missing that coolness factor that the Santa Fe can hardly contain.

Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Specs

Hyundai Santa Fe vs Ford Edge Performance

Many similarities appear in the Hyundai and the Ford, like the availability of two engines each and a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. Plus, they both use an 8-speed automatic transmission to put you in the right gear.

Feel free to drive to Manhattan or to Beantown when you get the chance or navigate any congested Connecticut street. The Santa Fe achieves an EPA-estimated 25 city MPG, while the Ford achieves an EPA-estimated 21 city MPG.1
