When descending a steep, off-road slope, the Santa Fe’s standard Downhill Brake Control allows you to creep down safely. The JX doesn’t offer Downhill Brake Control.

Both the Santa Fe and the JX have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding and available all wheel drive.

For its top level performance in frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rates the Santa Fe as a “Top Pick,” a rating only granted to 147 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The JX has not been tested, yet.

The Santa Fe comes with a full 5 year/60,000 mile basic warranty, which covers the entire truck and includes 24 hour roadside assistance. The JX’s 4 year/60,000 mile basic warranty expires 1 year sooner.

Hyundai’s powertrain warranty covers the Santa Fe 4 years and 30,000 miles longer than Infiniti covers the JX. Any repair needed on the engine, transmission, axles, joints or driveshafts is fully covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles. Coverage on the JX ends after only 6 years or 70,000 miles.

There are almost 4 times as many Hyundai dealers as there are Infiniti dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Santa Fe’s warranty.

The Hyundai Santa Fe may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 300 to 350 pounds less than the Infiniti JX.
