Attractive profile, styling
Soft, nicely detailed cabin
Quiet interior

Cons
Cramped third row
Sluggish/drab infotainment
Hybrid emphasizes capability, not mpg

The 2020 Ford Explorer ranked #18 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Ford Explorer has a score of 7.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 11 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Impressive standard safety and tech features
Broad, airy cabin
Lots of cargo space
Lineup of powerful, refined engines

Cons
Bland interior in lower trims
So-so upgraded infotainment system

By:

Hyundai is on a good track. For starters, the new ute looks more grown-up and handsome. The rear glass is more vertical, a boon to headroom for the sort-of-optional third-row seats (more on that later) and cargo space. With shorter overhangs, a longer wheelbase, greater length, and slightly more girth than the ’18 Santa Fe Sport, interior space is up, too. Hyundai increased visibility by employing what it claims is 41 percent more glass area than in the outgoing Santa Fe Sport to nurture the target markets of empty nesters and families moving up from a sedan.

Pros
Sharp looks,
bigger inside and out than the Sport it replaces,
packed with features.

Cons
Some low-rent plastics inside;
small fuel-economy bump;
so which one is this, again?
