Year after year, the SUV class introduces new models to the mix. However, the 2020 Ford Edge vs. the Hyundai Santa Fe is a common showdown with the SUV class. After all, they blend style with practicality, but only one can be your companion for your trips around East Stroudsburg, Nazareth, and Easton. So, how do you choose? It starts with research.

The Edge vs. Santa Fe comparison crafted by our Ray Price Stroud Ford staff highlights the key features and specifications of both SUVs side by side. That way, you can determine which model is the best fit for your trips around Stroudsburg and Lehigh Valley. Let's start with a look under their hoods!  

Performance of the Ford Edge vs Hyundai Santa Fe

With the Ford Edge and the Hyundai Santa Fe, you can be confident in their powerful engines. Thanks to their potent performance, they can effortlessly get you up to speed on the highway and ramps.  

The Hyundai Santa Fe has two available engines: a 2.4L 4-cylinder and a 2.0L 4-cylinder. The standard 2.4L 4-cylinder produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, while the optional 2.0L 4-cylinder delivers 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

While the Santa Fe engines are solid options, they can't exceed the energetic engines of the Ford Edge. With the Ford Edge, you'll get a standard 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 that churns out 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The available 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 brings it to the next level, though, with 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.  

Each SUV also features an Auto Start/Stop system. It shuts off the engine when you're not in motion to save fuel before restarting the engine when you're ready to accelerate again.

Traction and Safety

Although it's fun to have a riveting ride, it's important that it's steady and stable. Luckily, the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe enhance their traction and safety with several key systems. 

The Hyundai Santa Fe has optional HTRAC All Wheel Drive, for example. It's a solid system, similar to Intelligent All-Wheel Drive found in the Ford Edge. Also, the SUVs also have Hill Start Assist and Traction Control features to enhance your grip on the road. 

However, the Ford Edge is equipped with Post-Collision Braking, a system that minimizes the severity of impact by automatically applying moderate brake pressure after an initial crash.

Interior Space

If you'll regularly be dropping off the kids at school or venturing out for a family road trip in your next SUV, it's important to have a spacious cabin and rows.

Passengers in the rear row will be more comfortable in the Ford Edge, though, thanks to its ample legroom. In fact, the Ford Edge provides 40.3 inches of rear headroom, 40.6 inches of rear legroom, and 57.5 inches of rear hip room.

In the Santa Fe, you get 39.2 inches of rear headroom, 40.9 inches of rear legroom, and 56.3 inches of rear hip room. Overall, the Ford Edge proves to be more comfortable for second-row passengers.

Here's a look at how the cargo volumes stack up:

  • Ford Edge: 39.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row/73.4 cubic feet total
  • Hyundai Santa Fe: 35.9 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row/71.3 cubic feet total

Ford Edge Beats the Hyundai Santa Fe

The 2020 Ford Edge vs. Hyundai Santa Fe showdown never felt all that close. With its ample space, cutting-edge safety, and dynamic performance, the 2020 Ford Edge is a capable sidekick for your trips around East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Lehigh Valley, Nazareth, and Easton.
