2019 Hyundai Santa Fe vs Nissan Murano: Exterior Dimensions

To begin our comparison between the Santa Fe and the Murano, we'll be taking a look at the overall size of these sport utility vehicles. The Santa Fe has an overall length of 187.8 inches, a width of 74.4 inches, and a height of 66.1 inches. You find that the Murano is quite a bit larger. It's 192.8 inches long, 75.4 inches wide, and 67.8 inches high. The Hyundai Santa Fe's smaller stature allows it to maneuver better when cornering around those tight city streets.

Interior Measurements

When you and your passengers take a seat inside the 2019 Santa Fe, one of the first things you're likely to notice is its abundance of cabin space. Its front headroom measures at 41.2 inches, its front legroom is 44.1 inches, and its front hip room comes to 57.5 inches. The second row is just as accommodating. Back there, you can expect to find 40.9 inches of legroom and 56.3 inches of hip room.

Unfortunately for the Nissan Murano, there's not quite as much wiggle room over there. In the front row, the Murano only provides you with 39.9 inches of headroom, 40.5 inches of legroom, and 55.4 inches of hip room. The second row continues to fall short with 38.7 inches of legroom and 55.2 inches of hip room.

Convenience Features for the Santa Fe vs Murano

The 2019 Santa Fe continues to come out ahead as we move on to the topic of convenience. For instance, it's available with heated side mirrors to ensure that you have full visibility even when the weather starts to get chilly. It also has door handle welcome lights for when you're approaching the vehicle at night. The Nissan Murano is not available with either of these features.
