The Hyundai Santa Fe is definitely going to turn heads because this is the first model of the Hyundai range to have an all-wheel-drive system that is balanced through various drive modes. To differentiate between the Sport, Smart and Normal modes of the Santa Fe, check for the color coding and master it. You will need to be alert here because the mode determines the nature of driving experience you get at the end of each ride. If you want maximum cruise experience, have your test drive on the smooth Kenosha roads before you hit the real terrain.


It is clear that the Santa Fe was not designed for competition but the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder was.  You will appreciate its ability more if you are out on the dirty, curvy and twisting paths like they appear in forests. The seemingly easy movement of the Nissan Pathfinder would make Subaru and Jeep owners run for cover. This is the car you ride when you are having a bad day just to rekindle confidence and command respect.

The reason the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder moves fast compared to the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is the amount of torque it produces. The Nissan 3.5 DOHC V6 manages output of 259 vs. 252 pounds produced by the Santa Fe XL's 3.3 DOHC V6.


The standard CVT system of the Pathfinder means that it always moves without missing steps between gears. The smooth transmission of power enhances the efficiency of this car's engine, saving drivers tons of money. Without a CVT system, the Santa Fe cannot boast of the same level of fuel efficiency.


A direct comparison between the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe indicates that the Pathfinder manages to produce more horsepower than the Santa Fe. This means that the Santa Fe will always feel slow and weak especially for experienced drivers.


You cannot mention engine power and fail to speak about fuel consumption. In our case, the 2WD of the Pathfinder manages 20 city mpg or 27 highway mpg while the 4WD goes for 96 city mpg or 27 highway mpg. When it comes to the Santa Fe, this performance is lower at 18 city mpg or 25 highway mpg for the 2WD and manages 18 city mpg or 24 highway mpg for the 4WD.




Ample legroom between the front and backseats allows for passengers seated at the back to stretch out which is a good thing if on a long distant trip aboard a Nissan Pathfinder. At the same time, the headroom of the Nissan Pathfinder allows for hand stretching and interaction. Generally, Nissan has invested in space and even the driver and front passenger have an easy time finding room to move their legs around.




To improve on the safety of passengers and the driver, the front, center and back seat shoulder belts of the Nissan Pathfinder are adjustable to suit people of different heights. Did you know that a safety belt in an accident is not in itself useful? A good safety belt fit is handy in increasing the comfort and extent of injuries of passengers. Those who ride in the Santa Fe do not have access to adjustable belts that cover to the front passenger and rear seats.


Due to a large number of infants and children who lose their lives as a result of suffocation after being left in a closed vehicle, Nissan has a solution. The Nissan Pathfinder has an automatic system that senses when the driver switches off the engine, triggering a reminder to open rear doors if children are present.
