2020 Hyundai Tucson vs 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe

Serving Memphis, TN

The Tucson and the Santa Fe have both been top options among SUV shoppers for many years. The 2020 Tucson is a compact crossover SUV that accommodates five passengers, and its last significant refresh occurred the previous year. The 2020 Santa Fe, on the other hand, is a midsize crossover SUV. It also has two rows of seating and is fresh off of a significant update. At Wolfchase Hyundai, you can check out both of these models in person and take them out on the road for a first-hand experience.


The smaller Tucson is offered with two powertrain options. The 2.0-liter, inline-4 engine, produces 161 horsepower. The alternative is a 2.4-liter, inline-4 engine that generates 181 horsepower. These are both combined with 6-speed Shiftonic auto transmission with front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. In comparison, the 2020 Santa Fe’s base engine is an inline-4, 2.4-liter engine that gives you 185 horsepower. Its top powertrain is a turbo 2.0-liter, an inline-4 engine that offers you a boost with 235 horsepower. The Santa Fe’s engines are connected to an 8-speed Shiftronic auto transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard across the Santa Fe’s trim line, or you can upgrade to the HTRAC all-wheel drive.


The 2020 Tucson has a sporty edge thanks to its coupe-like roof and substantial ground clearance. The smooth hood remains almost level until it breaks sharply into the black mesh grille. The crisp LED headlights point inward to define the grille’s shape. Below the grille, a body-colored ribbon sits above the black air vent and rolls into the foglamp ports. The 2020 Santa Fe has a regal profile with steady height across the entire roofline. The grille shape is comparable to the Tucson’s grille, and it sits on a thicker body-colored piece. The headlights are thin with a sharp angle, and they are placed over dominant air vent ports. The Santa Fe has modest definition down the hood and a bold character line down the sides.


Inside the Tucson, the lower trims come with cloth material, manual seat adjustments, and a 7-inch touch display screen. Across the higher trims of the Tucson and all of the Santa Fe trims, you will find leather material, powered front seat adjustments, a rearview monitor, and a few other features. At the highest trim levels, these vehicles also are outfitted with wireless device charging, smart cruise control with stop-and-go tech, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, and a few other items.
