Compare to the Jeep Cherokee, Kia Sorento & Ford Escape

Ah, the compact SUV, often referred to as a crossover. It's one of the most popular body styles seen out on the road, as these crossovers blend everyday sensibilities with added interior space and family-friendly convenience and safety for all your travels. But we here at our Concord, NC Hyundai dealership serving Kannapolis, Charlotte, Matthews, Monroe and Huntersville have one such crossover that we prefer over all others. Of course we're talking about the new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, and here we're comparing it to the Jeep Cherokee, Kia Sorento and Ford Escape, all in their base model levels.
