2015 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2015 Honda CR-V

Read This Before Buying a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe in West Michigan

There are a few choices for new crossovers in West Michigan, and the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe presents a compelling choice. With its standard V6 engine, though, you may end up with more power and less fuel than you bargained for (Hyundai’s Santa Fe has a 25 highway and 18 city mpg), and although the GLS has some nice equipment, there’s only one trim level you can upgrade to… if the basic model is missing a feature or two, you may be forced to choose between doing without or upgrading for a lot of features you may not ever use.

If you want an option for a fuel-efficient, modern crossover with plenty of trim levels in West Michigan, all you need to do is take a look at the 2015 Honda CR-V, which just earned Motor Trend’s 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year Award. A vehicle has to succeed at every level to receive a recognition like this, but we thought it would be a good idea to focus on two of the CR-V’s best attributes: its fuel economy and standard features. While the Santa Fe guzzles gas, the CR-V sips it: 2015 CR-V 2WD models earn an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg.* And each 2015 CR-V comes with the following features from the basic LX trim level to the top Touring trim with no need to upgrade for them: Bluetooth phone and audio, a rearview camera, a Honda i-MID touchscreen infotainment system, and more.

See how these two crossover stack up side-by-side, then let us show you the CR-V in person at a West Michigan Honda Dealer.
