2016 Honda CR-VIf you’re tempted by the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe price, we have news for you: West Michigan drivers can find a more fuel-efficient and affordable crossover at a West Michigan Honda Dealer. The 2016 Honda CR-V is available now, and not only does it best the Santa Fe (and the smaller Santa Fe Sport) on price, it comes out ahead in fuel economy and amenities as well.

Honda Means Savings

The 2016 Honda CR-V has a reputation as one of the most practical, affordable, and fuel-efficient cars on the road, and that’s clear as day when you compare it to the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe price and fuel efficiency:

  • 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe models have a base price of $30,400, and the slightly larger size impacts the fuel economy significantly. It’s rated at just 25 highway and 18 city mpg.
  • The smaller 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, priced at $24,950, is a slight improvement over its bigger sibling with 27 mpg highway and 20 mpg city.
  • The 2016 Honda CR-V 2WD LX comes out ahead of both of Hyundai’s Santa Fe models with a price of $23,595 (MSRP)* and an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg and 26 city mpg.**

Families in need of a crossover that can stay within the budget, we think the specs of these three models paint a clear picture of where you will find savings.

If you think the higher price of the 2016 Santa Fe means it has superior features, you’re not alone, but it still lags behind the CR-V in some key areas, including a rearview camera. Both models do have a rearview camera, but Honda includes a multi-angle model to give you three views of what’s behind you before backing up.

Honda also has their brand-new Honda Sensing suite of safety features available for upgrade at every trim level while comparable advanced safety amenities on the Santa Fe are only found on the higher trim levels.
