Hyundai Santa Fe

Professional Reviews

  • “...V6 engine is a powerful, smooth, free-revving engine that's close to being the best V6 engine in its class.” — Canadian Driver
  • “...larger and roomier than Asian competitors as the Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester...” — Woman Motorist
  • “...suspension represents a good compromise between ride and handling, with the edge given to ride.” — AutoWeek
  • “comes close to rivaling the haulage capacity of seven-seaters like Acura's MDX and the Mercury Mountaineer.” — The Car Connection
  • “It's a crowded poker game, but Santa Fe is holding a decent hand.” — The Car Connection
  • “...we liked how the Santa Fe drove, both on and off paved roads.” — New Car Test Drive
  • “[Full-time all-wheel drive] comes at the price of an additional 331 pounds, and the added weight makes the Santa Fe lethargic in the way it steers, corners, and accelerates.” — Automobile
  • “The rear liftgate avoids the mistake made by the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, whose right-side hinged tailgates force U.S. buyers to walk around the tailgate to load and unload from the curbside.” — New Car Test Drive
  • “The driving position is upright and offers a commanding view of the road, while the rear seat has been packaged to maximize leg room.” — Automobile
  • “...excellent 10-year/100,000 limited powertrain and 5-year/60,000-mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranties.” — Edmunds.com
  • “Cargo-wise, the Ford Escape is the only competitor significantly bettering the Santa Fe.” — New Car Test Drive
  • “...an SUV-shaped package with all-weather mobility, yet it's soft around the edges like the Sonata sedan from which its hardware is derived... follows the pattern set so successfully by the Lexus RX 300.” — Automobile
  • “...4-speed automatic 'Shiftronic' transmission that can be shifted manually (the only one in a compact SUV).” — Canadian Driver
  • “...a scant 7.4 inches of maximum ground clearance...” — Edmunds.com
  • “...the four-speed automatic seems random in its decisions to shift.” — Car and Driver
  • “Inside are storage nooks everywhere, including under the seats.” — AutoWeek
  • “the Escape drives as if it's in a class far above the Santa Fe.” — Automobile
  • “Santa Fe is a full featured, car-derived sport/ute with a starting price of just $16,499.” — The Car Connection
  • “...the best thing to come from any Korean automaker since forever.” — USA Today
  • “...full-time, all-wheel drive was surefooted in conditions that befuddle more-expensive systems.” — USA Today
  • “At $20,234 as tested, this is the screaming bargain of the [compact sport utility] bunch.” — Car and Driver
