The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is geared toward big families with a strong V-6 and loads of features, but third-row seat space is slim, and safety scores are absent. The 2016 Jeep Cherokee offers everything that the brand and nameplate promise—although there are some disconnects in the styling and packaging.
