2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2015 Jeep Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Jeep Cherokee.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport as you will with the Jeep Cherokee, 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport or the Jeep Cherokee, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Sport carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a little wider than the Jeep Cherokee, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Cherokee.

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

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport will do just as well as the Jeep Cherokee, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the Jeep Cherokee. With the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Cherokee.

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