Comparison Review

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Subaru Outback, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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). The Subaru Outback is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Santa Fe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru Outback carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

When considering towing capacity, the Subaru Outback is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Santa Fe for pulling heavy loads. The Subaru Outback has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

The basic warranty of the Subaru Outback is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
