2016 Jeep Patriot vs. 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Hyundai Santa Fe requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Patriot, 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 Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot is much higher than that for the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

Handling
The Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Patriot has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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