The two vehicles are pretty similar across the board, but the seating capacity should stand out. The Tiguan is not a huge, bulky vehicle, but it feels like it on the inside. Its spacious interior is one of its biggest perks. Under the hood, both crossovers remain similar. The Santa Fe Sport has a slightly larger engine, but not enough to cause any notable performance differences. LED brake lights also come standard on the Tiguan, and they are not available on the Santa Fe Sport. Other than that small difference, the two SUVs rank highly all-around on safety features.

If cargo space is your game, the Tiguan might be your ride. Yes, there are three rows of seats. But the back two can be folded down to create more than 73 cubic feet of space.
