The Edge has a larger fuel capacity as well (18.5 gallons vs. 17.4 gallons), letting you visit the gas station less frequently than you would with the Hyundai.

In the designated cargo area, you have 39.2 cu.ft. of space with the rear seats folded up, and 73.4 cu.ft. with them folded down. The Santa Fe Sport only offers 35.4 cu.ft. when folded up and 71.5 cu.ft. when folded down.

Features

Having a comfortable and safe driving experience is important to consider when leasing or purchasing a car. The following features are not available in the 2018 Santa Fe Sport:

  • Inflatable Rear Seatbelts: To help reduce impact and lessen the severity of any injuries, the rear seatbelts will inflate in the event of a collison.
  • Drift Compensation Steering: Stay on course when the road conditions get bumpy, and may otherwise force you to drift.
  • Active Grille Shutters: The front grille will automatically close the shutters to reduce air flow when less engine cooling is need, bettering your high way fuel economy.
  • Active Noise Cancellation: Keeps out any unwanted outside noise and vibration.
  • Active Park Assist: Let your Edge guide you into your parallel parking spot while you control the speed and brakes.
  • Remote Window Lowering: Let the heat out from a distance before you get in a hot car by remotely lowering your front windows.
  • Exterior Keypad: In inclement weather, or if you lock your keys in the car, easily get in your car without your keys using the exterior keypad.
  • Speed-sensitive wipers: Your wipers will automatically adjust their speed based on your speed when it rains.
  • Automatic Engine Start/Stop: When the car comes to a complete stop, your engine will turn off to help save your fuel and reduce pollution. When you’re ready to go again, it starts right back up.
