With seven spectacular current and forthcoming models, it's safe to say that Hyundai has cornered the SUV market. Two particular models that shine in their respective segments are the new Hyundai Tucson and the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL. Now for the important question: Which one is for you?

Let's dive in.

Compact or Midsize? That is the Question

There's a lot of overlap between the Tucson and the Santa Fe XL, and that's because they're both feature-filled. Both models come available with a panoramic sunroof, select Hyundai SmartSense features, and Infinity® premium audio. Each can be equipped with all-wheel drive as well.

It all boils down to your lifestyle demands.

The Tucson scores higher marks for efficiency, turning in 25 mpg in combined fuel economy at its highest engine level compared to the Santa Fe XL's 21 mpg. So if you're looking for a commuter car, the Tucson might be the better fit.

On the flip side, the 7-passenger Santa Fe XL packs more cabin space than the 5-passenger Tucson - 80 cu. ft. to 61.9 cu. ft., respectively. It also posts superior power numbers with 290 horsepower compared to the Tucson's 181 horsepower at its highest engine level. All of this, of course, is why the Santa Fe XL is the preferred choice for larger families and frequent travelers.
