Compare the Jeep Cherokee and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport near Springfield, IL

What matters most to you when shopping for your ideal SUV? Is it tremendous value? How about ample space? Maybe it's off-road prowess. Or, perhaps you're looking for a vehicle that's both stylish and full of substantive features that make every drive more pleasant. If you said yes to any of the above qualities, we think you might just love the new Jeep Cherokee! This compact SUV has it all for drivers like you from in and around Jacksonville, IL, and the nearby areas - meeting or beating out competitors like the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport in several key areas. Don't believe us? Here's how the Jeep Cherokee and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport stack up when pitted head-to-head!

Style and Capability

The new Jeep Cherokee has been recently redesigned, giving it a uniquely modern flair and fantastic aerodynamic properties. That being said, unlike the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, this SUV is, unmistakably, a Jeep. That means, among other things, that it comes from a rich heritage of rugged SUVs. Searching for something especially trail-ready for your off-road excursions? There are many trim options available in the Cherokee lineup, but perhaps the most unique are the Cherokee Trailhawk or Trailhawk Elite trims - which include off-road components like an off-road suspension and enhanced four-wheel-drive. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is available with all-wheel-drive, but it just can't match the Cherokee's level of off-road prowess.


Engine Options

Even if you're comparing entry-level Hyundai Santa Fe and Jeep Cherokee SUVs, the Cherokee is a worthy contender in many ways. Take power for instance; the Cherokee, just like the Santa Fe Sport, offers a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Interested in upgrading? As it happens the Santa Fe Sport and Cherokee also both offer turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine options as well!

Safety Features

Hyundai may be a brand that gets a reputation for providing value. And, while new Hyundai models, may, in fact, represent a good overall value, the new Jeep Cherokee offers SUV buyers like you near Taylorville with plenty of bang-for-your-buck where it matters most, too! While the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport comes standard only with a rearview camera, the Jeep Cherokee offers a rearview camera in addition to parking sensors. Plus, like the Santa Fe Sport, the Cherokee offers plenty of additional active safety features.

Technology and Infotainment

We know how important infotainment technology is when comparing SUVs. That's why we're proud of the Jeep Cherokee's standard infotainment setup - which includes a large 7-inch touchscreen Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Compare that to the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which offers a standard 5-inch infotainment display, and requires an upgrade to get a larger 7-inch display with smartphone integration.
