Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Hornet, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Dodge Hornet or the Hyundai Santa Fe, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Hornet is much wider than the Hyundai Santa Fe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Hornet, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Dodge Hornet will do just as well as the Hyundai Santa Fe, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Hornet greatly out-muscles the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Powertrain
The Dodge Hornet has much lower torque than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Dodge Hornet and the Hyundai Santa Fe.
