The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe comes in three trim levels: SE, SE Ultimate, and Limited Ultimate. All three trims come standard with a 3.3-liter V6 engine that delivers 252 pound-feet of torque, which is well below the 2018 Mazda CX-9's standard engine torque. Not only is it less powerful in terms of torque, but it's also significantly less fuel-efficient as well. Moving inside, the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is noticeably missing features such as Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Obstruction Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and a leather steering wheel, all of which come standard on the 2018 Mazda CX-9.
