The 2013 Honda CR-V vs. the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

2013 Honda CR-V

2013 Honda CR-V

The 2013 Honda CR-V has been a hit with drivers in the Merrillville area, and it’s available now at Bosak Honda in Highland, IN. This compact crossover has earned ample praise thanks to its generous interior dimensions, its strong fuel economy, and its impressive features. While we think that the new CR-V is an obvious choice for drivers in search of a crossover, we understand the need to do due diligence; with that in mind, we’d like to compare it to one of its biggest competitors: the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe.

The CR-V is a Superior Value

The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe is a strong competitor in the crossover segment, but the 2013 Honda CR-V simply offers much more bang for your buck. Here are just a few of the reasons why we think Merrillville drivers should choose Honda’s compact crossover:

  • It starts with the sticker price, as the 2013 CR-V has a base MSRP of $22,795, while the 2013 Santa Fe’s base MSRP comes in at $24,450. That’s a difference of $1,665, which is certainly no small amount.
  • The savings extends to the gas pump, as the 2WD 2013 CR-V LX is capable of achieving 23 mpg city/31 mpg highway/26 mpg combined,* compared to the 2013 Santa Fe’s 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway/24 mpg combined. It may not seem like much, but it will add up in a big way over time.
  • Worried about safety? Honda has you covered: the new CR-V not only comes with a rear electronic parking aid with camera, but it also scored five stars (out of five) in a front passenger crash test performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). A rearview camera is an optional feature in the new Santa Fe, and it only scored four stars in a front passenger crash test performed by the NHTSA.
