2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

In the past, many people did not consider buying vehicles from the Pacific Rim, mostly because some of them did not have good build quality. However, those days are long gone, and the region produces some excellent vehicles these days. Hyundai is a case in point. When shopping for an SUV, one that might come to mind could be the Jeep Grand Cherokee. On the surface, it might seem like this a much better vehicle than the Hyundai Santa Fe, but an examination of the details would prove this wrong.

Design & Style

While some of the past Jeep’s have been designed to be rugged, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee seems much softer. However, the vehicle has a beefy stance which makes up for this. On the whole, the Jeep Grand Cherokee looks appealing, though most find it a bit too voluminous. This is in contrast to the Hyundai Santa Fe which has stylish lines and accents that give it an understated, stylish appearance. It is without a doubt that this vehicle will continue turning heads well into the future.

In terms of the interior, both vehicles are well-appointed, with options such as leather seats and high quality trim. However, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe feels more spacious and more well-organized, and this gives the driver a sense of control. Passengers are also likely to feel a lot more comfortable in the Hyundai owing to the presence of more leg and head room.

Technology & Safety

The Jeep Grand Cherokee does not disappoint when it comes to technology and safety features, with offerings such as antilock braking systems, an excellent satellite navigation system as well as lane change assist and blind spot detection.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe has much more to offer in this domain. Some of the features you will get in the base Hyundai include an electronic parking brake, a high definition SatNav, an integrated rear view camera with dynamic guide lines and a proximity key. Rear cross traffic alert, lane change assist, automatic emergency braking and automatic high beam assist are also available to keep you safe when driving the Hyundai.


The Jeep Grand Cherokee’s standard model ships with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 295 horsepower and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission

The base 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe also ships with a slightly larger but more economical 3.3-liter 6-cylinder engine generating 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm.

The Bottom Line

When all the facts are considered, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe is a superior choice to the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Whether you are shopping for a sedan that offers luxury, reliability or simply a car to move you from place to place, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe will perform better than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
