2016 Dodge Journey vs. 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Dodge Journey, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Dodge Journey and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
The Dodge Journey requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Dodge Journey is a better financial choice over the Hyundai Santa Fe, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Journey is much higher than that for the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Journey takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Dodge Journey transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Dodge Journey for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Journey and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Journey has less cargo space than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Journey is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
