Crossover utility vehicles are an excellent way to get extra space and versatility without imposing space requirements, and Hyundai offers two models that are among the most compelling in their respective classes: the Tucson and Santa Fe. Although they appear similar at first glance, there are several important distinguishing characteristics to consider when making your decision. So, to help you in your search, we've briefly outlined a few of them below. Contact Williams Hyundai for more information about these crossovers and their available trims, options, and financing offers. Or, visit us here in Lansing, MI, for a test drive. We'll be happy to assist you.

2021 Hyundai Tucson

  • L x W x H (in.): 176.4 x 72.8 x 64.8
  • EPA Interior Volume: 133.2 cu. ft.
  • Cargo (min–max): 31–61.9 cu. ft.
  • Horsepower: 161–181

The Hyundai Tucson slots in the middle of Hyundai's SUV lineup, bigger than the Hyundai Kona and smaller than the Santa Fe. As a compact crossover, Tucson offers a practical balance of city-friendly dimensions and interior spaciousness, making it ideal for Lansing drivers seeking more utility than an x-small crossover and maximum maneuverability.

Tucson offers six trim levels and two engine options: SE and Value models equip a 2.0-liter four-cylinder (161 horsepower, 150 pound-feet of torque), while SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate get a little boost from a 2.4-liter engine (181 hp, 175 lb-ft). All-wheel-drive is available on any trim.

Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Driver Attention Warning.

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe

  • L x W x H (in.): 188.4 x 74.8 x 66.3
  • EPA Interior Volume : 147.9 cu. ft.
  • Cargo (min–max): 36.4–72.1 cu. ft.
  • Horsepower: 191–277

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a midsize crossover and the largest five-seat model in Hyundai's SUV lineup, smaller only than the Hyundai Palisade. The Santa Fe is a foot longer than Tucson, trading a bit of turning radius for increased passenger volume and cargo space. And with a wealth of standard amenities, including advanced safety features, it's perfect for the daily needs of Owosso families.

Santa Fe received a full redesign in 2019 and gets another significant refresh for 2021, including dynamic and refined interior and exterior aesthetics, new tech features (including wireless smartphone integration) and powertrains, and a luxurious Calligraphy trim level.

Santa Fe is available in four trim levels with two available engines. SE and SEL are motivated by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder (191 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque) paired with an 8-speed SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission and front-wheel or available all-wheel drive. Limited and Calligraphy equip a turbocharger, increasing output to 277 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. AWD is available on Limited and standard on Calligraphy.

Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights with automatic high beams, an 8-inch touchscreen (10.25-inch w/ navigation: available on SEL, standard on Limited and Calligraphy), wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Pedestrian, Cyclist, and Junction Turning Detection, Lane Keeping Assist, and Driver Attention Warning.
