There are a ton of crossovers and sport utility vehicles available out there on the market, which means selecting the one that you want to call yours can be a tall order. If you’re looking for some assistance in making your decision, you’ve come to the right place. To give you a better idea of why we think our midsize crossover is an excellent choice, we thought we’d compare the 2018 Honda Pilot vs 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both models are great crossover models, and we want to help you make a decision.
Advantages of the 2018 Honda Pilot
We constructed the table above to give you a better idea of just how comparable these two crossovers are. One glance will show you that they’re both very similar to one another, but each has its advantages. We figured the best way to go about this would be to work our way down row by row, starting with combined fuel efficiency. In today’s market, fuel efficiency might just be the most important aspect of any vehicle. Everyone wants to save money and be environmentally conscious, and having superior fuel efficiency hits two birds with one stone. The Honda Pilot will save you a bit of money at the pump, but its advantage is only by 0.5 litres every 100 kilometres, so not a huge one.

Plus, the Hyundai Santa Fe fires right back with an advantage of its own, offering an extra 10 horsepower. Much like the Pilot’s fuel efficiency advantage, 10 HP isn’t a big difference, but it will deliver a slightly more enjoyable driving experience for those paying close enough attention.
Where the real advantages come into play are in terms of space, and they’re both in favor of the Honda Pilot. Not only does the Pilot offer an extra 3 cubic feet of space for cargo behind the back seat, but it also offers more than 60 cu. ft. of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in. That’s a huge bonus, so if saving a bit of money and having a ton of extra space entice you, give us a call to get behind the wheel of a 2018 Pilot today.
