The 2016 Toyota Highlander is a fantastic vehicle that packs a lot of features and amenities into a stylish package and it easily stands up against competitors like the Hyundai Santa Fe. Let’s see how these two vehicles compare.

Reliability

Everyone wants a reliable SUV that they can count on when the going gets tough and the miles get long, and the 2016 Toyota Highlander is just that. This ultra-reliable SUV earned a four out of five score from J.D. Power’s Power Circle Ratings system, which indicates that Highlander offers better-than-average dependability over time. The Hyundai Santa Fe only earned three out of five circles, which is average at best. The Toyota Highlander also comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty as well as two years or 25,000 miles of ToyotaCare no-cost maintenance as well as two full years on roadside assistance with unlimited mileage. Hyundai offers a bumper-to-bumper warranty, but no roadside assistance or scheduled no-cost maintenance. For an SUV that you can absolutely count on, the 2016 Toyota Highlander is looking like the better choice, here.

Engine Options

The Toyota Highlander makes it easy for shoppers to get exactly what they want in their next car, because it offers three engine options. Choose your Highlander with either a 2.7-liter four-cylinder, a 3.5-liter V6, or a super-efficient hybrid V6. All of these engines are smooth and powerful and let you choose a price point that suits your budget as well as the powertrain that best suits your driving needs. On the other hand, the Hyundai Santa Fe only offers a single engine, a 3.3-liter V6, so you won’t be able to opt for better fuel economy or more power. If you want options, the Toyota Highlander has them in spades!

Fuel Economy

When shopping for an SUV, one of the things most people look at is gas mileage. The 2016 Toyota Highlander, with its three engine options, offers great fuel economy numbers. The four-cylinder engine can earn up to 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The standard V6 earns 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The hybrid version of the V6 can get up to 27 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. No matter which engine you choose for your Highlander, you will earn amazing gas mileage that will have you breezing past everyone driving a Hyundai Santa Fe. With just one engine available, the Hyundai Santa Fe earns only 18 miles per gallon on city streets and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. If you want great gas mileage choose the 2016 Toyota Highlander.

Safety

If you are shopping around for an SUV, chances are that you are looking for a car to drive your family around in, so safety is probably a big ticket item. If you are concerned with vehicle safety, step right up to the 2016 Toyota Highlander! The Highlander earned a top score of five stars overall from the NHTSA in their crash tests. The Toyota Highlander was also named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS last year, and though this year’s model has not yet been tested, all of the same technology and safety features are still offered on this year’s model and that designation is not expected to change at all. The Highlander earned ‘Good’ scores in all IIHS crash tests, including the challenging small-front overlap crash test. The Hyundai Santa Fe might have a five-star score from the NHTSA, but it earned only a ‘Marginal’ score in the IIHS’ small-front overlap test, so it misses the mark and gets no safety designations. The 2016 Toyota Highlander also offers more standard and available safety features than the Santa Fe, including a forward collision warning system with automatic braking, lane-departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. None of those features are even available as options on the Hyundai Santa Fe.

If you want a safe, efficient, reliable SUV with plenty of options, choose the 2016 Toyota Highlander from Sun Toyota. Serving Holiday, FL and the surrounding areas, we are proud to be one of the preferred Toyota dealers in the state.
