2015 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Jeep Wrangler, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Wrangler, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Wrangler will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Santa Fe. 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 Wrangler is much higher than that for the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler is about the same width as the Hyundai Santa Fe. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler 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 Wrangler for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Wrangler and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

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