2014 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe as you will with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Hyundai Santa Fe is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Santa Fe carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is about the same width as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Santa Fe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
