2014 Jeep Patriot vs. 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Jeep Patriot offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. 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 Sport.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Patriot as you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, 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). Clearly, the Jeep Patriot is a better financial choice over the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, 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 Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Patriot is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, 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 Sport.

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

Handling
The Jeep Patriot has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Patriot and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The Jeep Patriot has less cargo space than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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