The resource below will help walk you through all the differences and similarities between the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2020 Honda CRV crossover.
The 2020 Santa Fe comes with two engines, which both include an unobtrusive eight-speed automatic transmission. The standard engine is a 185-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder, and for an upgrade, you can get a faster 235-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. It has a competitive acceleration rate and is a comfortable ride for a commute around town. These engines come standard with front-wheel drive or the option to have all-wheel drive.
The 2020 CR-V comes with a 1.5-liter that is paired with a continuous transmission. Its hybrid version comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with two electric motors. The acceleration of the CR-V is decent and makes it an enjoyable ride when traveling long and short distances.
When deciding between the two engines, it is really up to customer preference. Continuous transmissions do save gas mileage but are not always the ideal feel for the driver.
