2015 Jeep Compass vs. 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Jeep Compass than the Hyundai Santa Fe. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Compass and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Compass, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Jeep Compass 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 Jeep Compass is much higher than that for the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Compass is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Jeep Compass, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Compass has much lower torque than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Jeep Compass for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Compass has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Jeep Compass has less seating than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making the Hyundai Santa Fe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Compass has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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