The pull to the compact crossover class is strong for good reason. While some drivers need the specialized offerings from the sedan, SUV, truck, and even minivan classes, most drivers simply want a no-compromise approach to on-road travel that is executed very well in the crossover segment. With plenty of space for passengers and gear, a higher ride height for comfortable driving, and fuel economy that doesn’t break the bank, it’s hard to top crossovers like the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe.
So, when it comes time to head to the dealership for a new vehicle, which crossover should be your first choice? For many drivers, the value-packed 2019 Toyota RAV4 is going to come out on top thanks to class-leading reliability and value. See our pricing, fuel economy, and base engine comparison of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe below.
As you can see from the chart above, not only does the 2019 Toyota RAV4 offer drivers more power on base models, but it does so while sipping less fuel. Base 2019 RAV4 models come equipped with a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force 4-Cylinder engine that delivers a healthy 203 horsepower for plenty of power underfoot. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe’s base 2.4-liter 4-Cylinder engine simply can’t top that.
Depending on the trim level, traditional gas-powered 2019 RAV4 configurations will receive about 26 miles per gallon city and 35 miles per gallon highway. That will help keep drivers on the road and away from the fuel pump, especially when compared to the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe that only delivers 22 miles per gallon city and 29 miles per gallon highway. Drivers interested in even better fuel economy scores also have the option of a hybrid powertrain on the 2019 RAV4 lineup that delivers an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 41 miles per gallon city and 38 miles per gallon highway.
