2016 Toyota Sequoia vs 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe
Full-blown Sport Utility Vehicles aren’t quite as popular as they used to be, as crossovers offer many of the same advantages while also offering a less-boxy style and superior efficiency. That doesn’t mean they don’t still exist, nor does it mean they’re any less good at what they’ve always been known for. Vehicles like the Sequoia offer rugged capability and plenty of space for cargo, without being a truck. We thought we’d see how this classic SUV measures up to one of its crossover competitors, by comparing the 2016 Toyota Sequoia vs 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Sequoia
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the Toyota Sequoia definitely delivers in that aspects that it counts. The Hyundai Santa Fe is quite powerful with an engine that offers 290 horsepower, but it still can’t compare to the Toyota Sequoia’s 381 HP. The torque of the two SUVs is the same, as the Sequoia offers 401 pound-feet, which is 149 lb-ft. less than the Santa Fe.
The most important area of sport utility vehicles like these is without a doubt cargo capacity. Passenger volume is always important, but not nearly as important as cargo capacity. The Sequoia offers an extra 5.4 cu. ft. of cargo capacity behind the back seat thanks to 18.9 cu. ft. of standard cargo capacity. But that’s not the end of it, as drivers can drop the back seats in each vehicle to open up even more space, and in this regard the Sequoia offers an extra 40.1 cu. ft. than its Hyundai competitor.
